White Horse Academy is a 16-bed residential treatment program for adolescent males ages 13-17 who are struggling with problems related to substance abuse. http://www.phoenixcenter.org/adolescent-residential.php The facility is located in Greenville, and serves families in South Carolina. The Academy’s clinical program offers a wide range of counseling and treatment activities focused in engaging the boys in their own recovery and bringing about positive changes in their lives.
One element missing from the White Horse Academy campus is a safe athletic field to aid in the recovery and therapy of the residents. One of our One Clemson board members worked with several local businesses to secure donations and in-kind services to develop the field. We now need to raise $55,000 to complete the field.
The One Clemson board voted to contribute $10,000 towards the construction of the athletic field. One of the benefactors of the Academy, Steve Grant, has pledged to match One Clemson’s donation for an amount up to $25,000. To raise the necessary funds another ONE Clemson board member has issued a challenge. He and is wife will triple match the first $5,000 in additional donations by One Clemson members and friends. If we can raise this additional $5,000, the matches will give us a total of $55,000.
So for an additional $5,000 we can build this field and all the future residents of White Horse Academy! Please make your contribution to fund the White Horse Academy ‘Field of Dreams’. You contribution may be tax deductible, as One Clemson is a non-profit organization under EIN 57-0426335.
NOTE: Any excess funds collected will be used to fund Clemson student-athlete internships.
