Cornerstone prides itself on giving back to the community in a number of ways. Aside from small sponsorships, such as helping local schools and community programs, we work hand-in-hand with many local organizations to make sure that whatever we CAN give back, we do.
Our CEO and Founder Michael Haskett shares why he feels that giving back is so important, “I feel that it’s extremely important to use success for the greater good,” he says. “Cornerstone has been a tremendous success and so I make it my personal goal to give back to this community in any way that I can. I encourage all the members of my organization to do the same.”
From 2013 to 2017, Cornerstone was the Premier sponsor for a local children’s cancer research funding, which raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for MUSC. Cornerstone has also donated office space to the organization and set up fundraising booths outside local Walmart stores.
As a group, Cornerstone has raised funds for foundations working to cure for Alzheimers, diabetes, breast cancer and heart disease. They have sent donations for disaster relief, music programs, sports programs, international relief missions, food drives and more!
“It really warms my heart when I see many members of my team stepping up in like manner to give back to the community,” Haskett says. This is really who we are at the core- a group of people that truly love our neighbor and want to making giving back a priority.
