Countybank Foundation donates $2,500 to Multiplying Good

February 27, 2024

The Countybank Foundation, established in 1971 representing Countybank and Greenwood Capital, donated $2,500 to Multiplying Good, an organization that helps people reach their full potential and discover their power to deliver impact and bring about meaningful change.

This donation will go toward the organization’s Students in Action (SIA) program, which teaches students to harness their passion, identify a related community need, and meet that need through fundraising and awareness efforts. The program currently has 18 participating schools across the Upstate. “Through donations from organizations like Countybank and Greenwood Capital, students are able to participate in the program for free,” said Dan Hoppe, Executive Director for Multiplying Good.

“It’s rewarding to have Countybank and Greenwood Capital support Multiplying Good, an organization I joined as an Upstate ChangeMaker in 2020 and later as a member of the Board of Advisors,” said Crystal Peterson, Treasury Services Advisor for Countybank. “Through this donation from the Countybank Foundation, we are able to put 100 students through the program.”

The overall goal of SIA is to address student preparedness for college and the workforce by the time they graduate. Each school’s SIA team works as a group toward reaching the six goals of the program: investigate, prepare, execute, reflect, share, and celebrate.

Teams meet on a regular schedule to access online curriculum covering topics that help students reach the program’s goals and complete actions such as conducting a community needs assessment, planning and executing a service project, and tracking impact. The program includes a bi-annual leadership training conference to help reinforce the skills students are learning.

“One of our core values is to serve each other with respect,” said Brian Disher, Director of Wealth Management for Greenwood Capital. “The Students in Action Program embodies that principle and helps these students—our future leaders—learn to approach their work with diligence and compassion.”
