In early 2013, Edward Marion, branch manager of the Columbia, SC office of Cornerstone Wealth and Tax Advisory Group, was informed that his recent request had been approved. This request was for a $10,000 grant through the Rebuild American Campaign (rebuild-america.com), that would be used toward construction of his office building.
“Our office is located in a wonderful part of downtown Columbia,” Marion says “And we chose that location because we knew that it had great potential.”
When Marion heard about the option to apply for the grant he knew he had to
give it a try. Being accepted for the grant means that funds have been made
available to him to renovate the front of his building and thus add to the overall appearance of the area.
Cornerstone’s CEO Michael Haskett feels that participating in these types of efforts is very important.
“Any time Cornerstone can help out the local communities in which our offices are located, we embrace that opportunity,” He says. “We are all about giving back and sometimes that means more than just donating to charity. It’s about doing your research, finding out what tools are available and then taking advantage of them in a way that will better the community. I’m excited about this opportunity and proud that one of my Branch Managers worked to make this happen. We are eager to see the work that will be done!”
Cornerstone, with the City of Columbia, will be having a press release party at their office on May30, 2013 at 1 pm where the Mayor of Columbia and other city officials will be present. Light refreshments will be served. We invite any members of the community to join us in this celebration. The Columbia office address is: 3612 Main Street , Columbia, SC 29203. Contact Edward Marion at (803) 691-6765 for more information.
