Fort Mill’s corporate growth creates fundraising opportunity for local nature preserve

Fort Mill is home to the Anne Springs Close Greenway,  which is an extensive area of protected nature preserve that totals approximately 2,100 acres and includes lakes, forests, pastures and trails. The greenway is the perfect place for hiking, biking, kayaking, horseback riding and more.

Maintaining the greenway is no small feat, and a fundraising drive was initiated recently in an attempt to raise $211,000 annually to pay for maintenance of the land.

There has been a tremendous amount of corporate growth in and around Fort Mill, and with that growth comes new and more employees to the area. The greenway is capitalizing on that growth and aiming to better connect with local CEOs and business people that could help in fundraising efforts for the nature preserve.

The Anne Springs Close Greenway not only needs corporate donations, but also participation from employees who can volunteer or host corporate events at the greenway.

There have been a number of efforts to generate interest and create buzz around the greenway and all it has to offer, including a business breakfast, a social media-focused marketing campaign encouraging people to take selfies on the greenway, and a hiking event.
