-A A +A

From release
Lancaster County Partners for Youth will honor Founders Federal Credit Union and the founding board members of the Lancaster Medical Endowment on Dec. 12  for their impact on the Lancaster County area.
The event is 6 p.m. at the Gateway in Richburg. Guest speaker is Chad Holbrook, University of South Carolina baseball coach.
Lancaster County Partners for Youth was formed as the Lancaster Medical Endowment in 1976 as a nonprofit subordinate of Springs Memorial Hospital.
Its founding members include Don Scott, George Waldrop, Dr. G.L. David, Dr. Pierce Horton, C.D. “Bubber” Gregory, Dr. Richard Gannaway, Leo Maguire, Dace Jones and Charlie Harrell.
With the transition of the hospital from nonprofit to profit the focus changed to youth. The foresight of these community leaders has resulted in more than $2 million in community grants; $1.3 million in scholarships and $83,000 in classroom grants for thousands of children and youth in our region.
The role of Founders Federal Credit Union in the lives of children is evident throughout the region. Supporting communities is a standard within the credit union and a belief guiding many of its decisions.
The Founders board of directors and management team share the philosophy that to achieve success, they must reinvest in its communities and help sustain them.
