ATLANTA, June 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — EPM launched the #LivesNotLoans campaign last year to give back to the community through various charities and philanthropic endeavors. Tied to the end of each loan is a real lived life. Giving back is an essential part of what EPM does to empower people more. EPM believes that empowerment leads to freedom, which means financial freedom, as well as mind and body wellness freedom. As the pandemic brought to light new opportunities for growth, EPM leaped at new opportunities to empower people more beyond the loans they provide.
One such opportunity presented itself to EPM President Phil Mancuso after his son returned home from college for the summer. University of South Carolina Aiken (UofSC Aiken) is looking to update their outdated sports facility. Phil felt moved to step in, do everything possible to give back, and ensure the funding was secured for the building before the student-athletes arrived back on campus for the Fall semester.
With over 200 student-athletes and over 300 exercise science students, the university does not have sufficient space to facilitate the training needed for their continued success. The existing limited space only accommodates 15 student-athletes and prevents the students from using proper equipment. Students are driven to improve their performance. Creating a dedicated space allows the students to invest in the success of their future – to empower themselves to their freedom.
In response to the donation, Jim Herlihy, Director of Athletics at UofSC Aiken, wrote, «On behalf of our students and student-athletes, we’d like to thank the Equity Prime Mortgage leadership for moving this project closer to reality. Once completed, this new Center will significantly enhance the academic and athletic development of over 20% of the students on campus. The Center has been the top priority of our student leadership council for the past two years. This impactful gift brings us very close to completion of fundraising for the project.»
«We’re proud to be a driving force in an initiative to help all these student-athletes reach for the highest highs, just as we do every day here at EPM. We also ask anyone who is in a position to give back to consider this cause as well. While we’ve solidified the foundation for a state-of-the-art facility, there’s never enough equipment, technology, or professional oversight to help these young men and women achieve their goals!» commented Phil.
The commitment to development and excellence is a driving force of the spirit within EPM. This generous outpouring of love and support will inspire a focus on the needs of a growing community. To donate to this cause, please visit https://giving.usca.edu/aiken-direct-your-gift.
