The Scalise Group

The Scalise Group – and Family

Supporting Waccamaw Community Foundation for 10+ years

As recently published on Coastal Community Foundation of SC Web Site This year, we are excited to be celebrating ten years in our Murrells Inlet office. A historic building nestled amongst the shops and restaurants that dot Highway 17 along the water, it's a beautiful place to call "work" each day, and we owe it all to The Scalise Group and family.

Originally purchased in 2003 by Sam Scalise, President and CEO of The Scalise Group, a real estate development company, he first used the former Captain's Restaurant as a sales office. However, a business shift up north prompted Sam to search for a new occupant. That's when he realized he had a unique opportunity to give back to Waccamaw Community Foundation and gifted the building to our organization.

The Scalise family's generosity extends beyond a single building, though. Sam and his wife, Cindy, co-advise a designated fund at Waccamaw Community Foundation for WARM – Waccamaw Area Rescue Mission, a local animal rescue group – because of Cindy's lifelong love of animals. Additionally, the family donated a building for a youth center to Church of the Resurrection, the family's church located in Surfside Beach.

Philanthropy is now a family tradition. As Sam's son, Matt, has taken on more responsibilities at The Scalise Group, so has his commitment to personal philanthropy along with his wife. That includes the Scalise family's newest charitable endeavor, The Scalise Group Charitable Fund. 25 percent of profits from the company's newest development, The Retreat at Barefoot, will be deposited in the Fund, which aims to help disadvantaged children in Horry and Georgetown counties access the opportunities they deserve.

We are excited to work with the Scalise family on this latest charitable project and look forward to ten more years of partnership in Murrells Inlet and beyond!

Waccamaw Community Foundation Marks Ten Year Anniversary in Murrells Inlet

As recently published on Coastal Community Foundation of SC Newsletter Eleven years ago, Waccamaw Community Foundation worked out of a rented office space in Myrtle Beach. Today, thanks to the generosity of the Scalise family, we work out of a historic restaurant-turned-office-space right off the beautiful waterfront of Murrells Inlet.

Sam Scalise, President and CEO of The Scalise Group and a real estate developer, originally acquired Waccamaw's building in 2003, back when it housed the former Captain's Restaurant. After considering several options for the building – he didn't want to tear it down due to the structure's historic significance – Sam renovated the space as a sales office.

However, when The Scalise Group's sales focus shifted north, Sam was in need of a new space for himself and a new occupant for 3655 South Highway 17 Business. Ultimately, he decided to donate the building to Waccamaw.

"We thought it was a perfect opportunity to help them out," shared Sam and Cindy, his wife. They had just learned that Waccamaw was looking to expand awareness of the organization further south of Myrtle Beach. The donated building straddles Horry and Georgetown counties, making it the perfect location.

On January 26, 2006, more than 100 people came to the office to celebrate the grand opening of Waccamaw Community Foundation's new office space, marking a new beginning for the center of philanthropy on the Grand Strand.

We thank you again, Scalise family, and look forward to ten more great years of connecting donors with causes they care about in Murrells Inlet!
