Vested Partners was
founded on the tradition of leadership, excellence, and keen awareness
of current need. Greenville itself has defied national trends by
continuing to grow and thrive in the midst of national recession. We are
proud to be a part of a cutting-edge community, and proud of our
corresponding tradition of leadership and innovation within the service
dog industry. To date, there
is no program in the United States that fully duplicates all the
services Vested Partners has provided to the Greater Greenville area.
We need YOUR help to continue to grow, and to provide additional service dogs for more individuals and families. Vested
Partners has arrived at its current success level--including a very
high demand for additional dogs--based primarily on the value of more than 20,000 hours per year of volunteer time!
But no program can manage major growth on volunteer labor alone.
Vested Partners is currently seeking funding—via grants, private
contributions, or subscription support by businesses—to hire a full-time
Executive Director. VP's Board of Directors is unanimously agreed on
this next, critical step to continue meeting the ever-increasing demand
for our dogs.
Up to now, we have been privileged to have support
not only from hundreds of Greenville individuals, but also from groups
such as Hollingsworth Funds, Inc.; The Barbara Stone Foundation; The
Graham Foundation; the South Carolina Developmental Disabilities
Council; Vocational Rehabilitation of SC and NC; Family Support Funds;
The HASCII Waiver; The BMW Charity Pro-Am; Thornblade Club; Dataspring,
Inc; and the Clemson Panhellenic Council.
