Community Partners

At Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty, we love being part of the local community around us. That’s why we’re proud to partner with and sponsor a variety of businesses, organizations, and institutions. Below is a list of the enterprises associated with our sponsorships:

World Affairs Council of Charleston

The World Affairs Council of Charleston (WACC, formerly the Charleston Foreign Affairs Forum) was founded in the early 1980’s as a non-profit, nonpartisan organization. The WACC mission is to educate and engage the wider Charleston community through timely non-partisan activities on world affairs and international relations. The WACC membership, representing a cross-section of individuals from business, education, and civic backgrounds, seeks to inform and attract participants of all ages. Through thought-provoking presentations and discussions, participants are challenged to foster their understanding of the world. The WACC is a member of the World Affairs Councils of America.

The WACC hosts six speaking events each year. The events feature distinguished presenters from the U.S. and foreign governments, academic organizations and the business community. The speakers present timely lectures on international events affecting our lives. A lively question and answer period follows the presentations.

Established in 1748 by 19 young people who wanted to stay current with the literature, history, and scientific and medical discoveries in Europe, the founding members of the Charleston Library Society were an intellectually curious and culturally productive group.
