Williams & Fudge, Inc.

2010 Recipient for Business


Williams & Fudge, Inc. founders Gary and Peggy Williams have made support of the arts a part of their corporate culture. The accounts receivable management company and its employees lend professional expertise by serving on local boards and work to make local arts initiatives possible through personal and corporate funding.


The company recently made significant contributions totaling $14 million to restore a historic former textile mill for its headquarters, and sponsored an art competition to design an art piece that now spans its main entrance. The company provided cash gifts of $88,000 to local arts organizations in 2009.


It has been a major donor to many local art and arts education programs, performances, festivals and exhibitions. Williams & Fudge, Inc. has been recognized by organizations such as the Americans for the Arts and Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation for its dedication to the arts and revitalization efforts.
