Employee Giving and Matching Program, AllSouth Gives Back
Our commitment to service doesn't stop with our members. We're also committed to investing in the communities we proudly serve. It's our mission to help improve the quality of life in our communities by dedicating resources, funds, and employee time to local organizations, causes, and charities that reflect our shared values of military support, family crisis, and issues of homelessness and hunger.
At AllSouth, we remain dedicated to supporting charities and organizations that help those in our community with food insecurity and that provide other services to struggling families. We partner with charities and non-profits in our local communities, selecting areas where the need is greatest and where we can make the most significant impact.
Our AllSouth team recognizes the importance of giving back and has demonstrated their support by donating to worthy causes. Since 2012, our team members have generously donated over $68,000 to local charities as part of our 'Casual for a Cause' program. This program allowed employees to dress 'casual' in exchange for a donation to a selected charity each month.
To further increase our giving to help those in need, we redesigned our 'Casual for a Cause' program. In 2022, we introduced 'AllSouth Gives Back,' our newly redesigned employee giving program. Through 'AllSouth Gives Back,' we match our team members' generous contributions dollar-for-dollar. The 'AllSouth Gives Back' program provides donations and supports the mission and goals of charities in the communities we serve throughout the Midlands. In 2023, our program donated over $26,000 to local charities.
"Our AllSouth team is very generous and really enjoys giving back to the community. Over the years, I have watched our team rally around collection drives for veterans and donate several thousands of meals worth of food," said Bill Koehler, President & CEO. "Their generosity inspires us to do more, which is why we wanted to match their contributions."
As part of our 'AllSouth Gives Back' program, our team selected charities and non-profit organizations they wanted to contribute to. Twelve charities were selected, one for each month of the year. The charities that were chosen for 2024 are:
- The Samaritan House of Orangeburg
- Dickerson Children’s Advocacy Center
- Ronald McDonald House of Columbia
- Soldiers & Vets Charity Golf Tournament (AllSouth's annual charity golf tournament. Learn more about the tournament and AllSouth's fundraising efforts.)
- Palmetto Place
- Central South Carolina Habitat for Humanity
- Camp Cole
- Newberry County Literacy Council
- Prisma Health Walk for Life/Half Marathon
- Healthy Learners
- Vets Christmas Charity Ride
- Epworth Children’s Home
We hope that our steadfast commitment to our community and members demonstrates our willingness to be both a financial and community partner through good times and bad. We will continue to seek new and innovative ways to provide our members with solutions that meet their banking needs and help make the every day possible while supporting our local communities.
