The Big “I" South Carolina is excited for YEAR THREE of our community campaign called THE GIVE MOVEMENT. All of our hard work too make this campaign a success and the support you give is to benefit the amazing wish children of Make-A-Wish of SC, our Trusted Choice community partner.
WHAT IS THE GIVE MOVEMENT?
The GIVE MOVEMENT is a Big I of SC statewide initiative inspired & led by our very own SC Young Agents and encourages all SC Independent agents, affiliates, and partners (customers, neighbors, and friends!) across the state to come together for one week (June 1-8, 2023) for something much bigger than a business: to give back to an incredibly inspirational and worthy cause.
DID YOU KNOW? The Give Movement is a National Big "I" Initiative. Each participating states achievements will be tracked by the Big "I" YA on a National level and we look forward to sharing how our agents & brokers, once again, come together to make things happen! Together, we can make a HUGE impact!
Our 2023 GOAL is to raise $25,000– enough to grant the wishes of close to 3 SC Make-A-Wish Children with critical illnesses that are waiting for wishes.
NOW MORE THAN EVER IS WHEN WE SHOULD COME TOGETHER FOR GOOD!

If your agency or company wishes to participate in this campaign at a higher level, consider becoming one of our TOP GIVERS. Agencies or Companies that donate a minimum of $1,000 (in advance) to the campaign will earn your agency recognition as a top giving organization for this campaign.
BENEFITS OF BEING A TOP GIVER:
- You will gain a complimentary attendee for an IIABSC event of your choice

Top Givers have the option to either pay the full amount directly or partner with another agency and split their donation commitment (for Partnering Top agencies, a minimum of $3,000 is requested- $1,500 per agency).
To become a TOP GIVING ORGANIZATION for 2023:
*It is important that the top givers meet deadlines specified above so that Make-A-Wish can account for those funds before the week of giving campaign opens in June.

TOP GIVERS are a key component to the success of this campaign. Also see benefits for Top Givers listed on commitment form.
TOGETHER WE GIVE
AFTER you submit your donation, you will receive a social media kit where you can download a "TOGETHER WE GIVE" image. We encourage all donors to post the image online or change your profile photo on your social media platforms in order to connect everyone who has joined our movement. Let's see how many profile pictures we can change during our week of giving!
DONATE, LIKE, & SHARE!
Now, more than ever, as we navigate this uncertain time, your donation will have an incredible impact for local "Wish Kids" and their families. Each donation makes a difference, no matter how large or small and each goes directly to Make-A-Wish® of SC to help fulfill the wishes of the 450+ SC children waiting currently for their wishes to be granted. The average cost of a single wish is $7,500 and our goal is to grant as many wishes as possible.
On average, MAW of SC grants more than 200 wishes per year for children with critical illnesses, but, as with all of us, COVID-19 has had a direct impact on those efforts. The IIABSC Give Movement was scheduled before COVID-19 in support of Trusted Choice community partner MAW, and now more than ever we are committed to granting as many wishes as possible. Our Independent Agents & Partners have huge hearts and we see you making a difference every day in the lives of others, now it's our time to make an impact together as an industry within our state. As we all navigate these uncertain times, one thing remains certain: although we may be apart, we will find ways of overcoming, TOGETHER!
