About Us

For over 20 years, the innovative leadership of Greenwood has advanced Greenwood County’s economy and quality of life.

Greenwood’s economic strength originated from the area’s once thriving textile industry. Since then, a world of change has occurred. Today, Greenwood is an economy with achievements in specialized manufacturing, life science discoveries and advancement, unsurpassed healthcare services and treatment, and rapid growth of the retirement population.


In 1999, The Foundation for a Greater Greenwood County, Inc., a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, was created to support the charitable operations of the Greenwood Partnership Alliance with a focus on community and workforce development. In 2020, the Foundation became a stand-alone organization and rebranded under the name VisionGreenwood. To date, VisionGreenwood has invested over $2.9 million dollars into the Greenwood Community by supporting initiatives that provide economic prosperity and enhance the growth and success of Greenwood. By intent and design, VisionGreenwood continues to be a community partner that is focused on Greenwood’s future, its economic growth and development, and its quality of life.
