The Countybank Foundation, established in 1971 representing Countybank and Greenwood Capital, recently donated $5,000 to the Carolina Football Club.
The donation will cover 10 partial scholarships for players and their families who can’t afford team fees. Scholarships are used to help pay for player tournament fees, team fees, or uniforms depending on the need.
“The Countybank Foundation is honored to support this organization and its mission, which aligns with our commitment toward diversity, equity, and inclusion,” said Kevin Duncan, Greer Market Executive and a member of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council for Countybank. “The program not only promotes inclusivity but enables them to build a diverse soccer community where children from all backgrounds can unite, learn from one another, and form lifelong bonds.”
Carolina Football Club is a charitable organization that offers soccer instruction and competition for boys and girls ages 3 – 18. The club, located in Lyman, currently has more than 550 registered players from Spartanburg and Greenville Counties.
“We want each player to enjoy their time with the club and be challenged in a positive coaching environment to improve themselves as players and people,” said Rick Parlow, Executive Director for Carolina Football Club. “We believe everyone who loves the game of soccer should be able to play and develop, and the recent donation from the Coutnybank Foundation allows us to achieve this goal.”
