Jocassee Real Estate is a proud spononsor of Dabo's All-In Team Foundation. The foundation's mission is to raise awareness of critical education and health issues in order to change lives of people across the state of South Carolina.
The All In Team Foundation has 5 focus areas:
1. Breast Cancer Research
Objective: To raise funds for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, AnMed Women’s Clinic, local university research programs, and efforts providing medical screening/testing to local upstate residents. The goal is to provide funds that will be used to promote early cancer screening, detection and continued research. The Swinney extended family has experienced first-hand the battle with breast cancer. The Foundation will work hand in hand to make the fight easier for the next family.
2. The Family Effect
The Family Effect is an organization working to reduce addiction as a leading cause of family collapse and harm to children. This goal is accomplished by building community engagement and philanthropic support for programs such as Serenity Place, which is operated by The Phoenix Center in Greenville, South Carolina.
3. Call Me MISTER
The mission of the Call Me MISTER (acronym for Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models) National Initiative is to increase the pool of available teachers from a broader more diverse background particularly among the State's lowest performing elementary schools. Student participants are largely selected from among under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at-risk communities.
4. RISE Program, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
The RISE program is a pre school program in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, serving special needs children. Coach and Kathleen were touched by Coach Gene Stallings, former University of Alabama coach, and the manner in which he handled the life experiences of raising a special needs child, John Mark Stallings. The All In Team Foundation will support the Rise program annually in honor of Coach Stallings and in memory of John Mark.
Objective: Provide Organizations an opportunity to receive funding from the Foundation to execute projects that fit within the stated Mission Statement.
