Society Sponsorships are an excellent way for businesses and organizations with a philanthropic component to support us in a variety of ways and be recognized for their generosity. Individuals are also welcome to contribute as sponsors.
Heritage Education Sponsor: The Heritage Education Program seeks to educate and instill a sense of pride to youths in the Charleston community about their history, culture and customs. Sponsorship contributions are needed to development classroom materials costs and field trip expenses.
