The Upstate Business Journal reports that Ameris Bank has donated $250,000 to the South Carolina Research Authority (SCRA), a public, nonprofit corporation that works to fuel the state’s innovation economy. The funds will be used to support the organization’s goal of sustaining and growing the state’s technology-based economy.
“The types of innovations being produced right now in our state are very exciting,” said SCRA Executive Director Bob Quinn. “Their impact ranges from revolutionizing health care delivery to transforming business operations to providing sustainable solutions for our environment. These innovations are being made possible by partners like Ameris Bank, who are investing in our state’s innovation economy, and receiving a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for doing so. These funds are used for our investments, grants, coaching and other services. Ameris Bank is a trusted partner for us.”
Ameris Bank also donated $150,000 to SCRA in 2021.
