Founders Club


With the inception of the Carolinas Club Foundation (CCF) came the need for some seed money; the foundation to the Foundation. Several Carolinas Chapter managers realized the opportunity of the Foundation and the potential to, one day, be able to solicit funds and support from the industry at large. However, they believed the importance of showing their own support of the Foundation, first. Thus, the Carolinas Club Foundation’s Board of Directors and those closely involved with the Foundation’s creation decided that the "buck" started with them. Each individual agreed to volunteer $1,000, for a total of $21,000 that marked the creation of the Founders Club.
