What it means to be Not-For-Profit
Not-for-profit organizations exist for the sake of their mission. PCSC exists to fulfill our mission of serving and enriching the lives of older adults while exercising good stewardship to support a sound enterprise for many years to come.
As a not-for-profit organization, PCSC is accountable to and overseen by a volunteer Board of Trustees. Board of Trustees members represent a wide range of disciplines that relate to our mission. With no expectation of financial gain, our board members are committed to making sure we remain true to our mission, respond to local needs, plan effectively for the future and manage financial resources effectively.
No one owns a not-for-profit corporation the way that shareholders own a for-profit corporation. By being a not-for-profit retirement community, PCSC has the freedom to concentrate on the needs of the residents, first and foremost. All revenue is used to provide for the daily service and programming for those we serve, including the physical environment at each community.
Like many not-for-profit providers of senior services that were begun by faith-based organizations, PCSC was founded by Presbyterian churches in South Carolina. It exists in covenant agreement with the five SC presbyteries of the Presbyterian Church (USA) denomination. The long-standing values of those founding churches were incorporated into our organization from the start and are reflected in our governance and management today.
