Healthy Community Grant available

Ward Edwards will invest up to $10,000 in projects that promote or improve environmental sustainability in coastal South Carolina and Georgia.  
The Healthy Community Grant is a competitive program funded by Ward Edwards to encourage creative solutions for existing environmental problems, plant seeds for innovation in stewardship, and recognize tangible efforts that lead to long-term sustainable benefits.
The program will achieve this through identifying and funding projects that encourage stewardship of resources with a particular benefit to the environment, provide environmental education or promote principles of sustainable design.
As a civil engineering and surveying firm, Ward Edwards’ mission is to add value to real estate by helping create communities that work.
“One of our core beliefs is that people are accountable for stewardship of the earth,” Allen Ward, president, said. “Adding value to real estate while practicing good stewardship requires the creativity and leadership of talented people. Therefore, to be successful, we need to hire the best people and work for the best clients.”
Ward Edwards decided to fund this program for the first time this year to support their strategy to hire the best and work for the best.
“It will demonstrate our values, tell our story, and help us connect with other community leaders, potential employees, and prospective clients who want to make a difference,” Ward said.
The application process is a two-step process. The initial one-page project summary is due on Sept. 25. A select group of qualified applicants will then be asked to submit a full application package which will be due on Nov. 30.
It is anticipated the grant(s) will be awarded in February 2008.
