We are proud to have been able to present the Upstate Warrior Solution with $15k from last years event.

Grant Details

SYP and Young Leaders are accepting letters of intent through Aug. 15 from organizations interested in benefitting from the 1831 Gala. Nonprofit organizations younger than three years old or existing nonprofit organizations with a new program are encouraged to apply.

Letters should outline the background of the organization, the scope of the project and how it aims to better the Spartanburg community. Ten candidates will be selected by Sept.15 and will be asked to provide full three-year grant proposals.


From its founding in 1831 to present day, Spartanburg has a long history of philanthropy. As the community continues its energizing growth, young residents support the local organizations that make Spartanburg great. This year with partnerships between United Way of the Piedmont Young Leaders, Spartanburg Young Professionals, and some Junior Members of the Piedmont Club, we are pleased to announce the 3rd annual edition of the 1831 Gala. The Gala will be held January 26, 2018 at the Piedmont Club from 8PM - 12AM.

The event will bring all Spartanburg young leaders together for a formal night of fare prepared by the Piedmont club and music from Black and Blue Experience. The event will be focused on raising funds and awareness to support the efforts of the Upstate Warrior Solution.

Tickets are $50 for members and $60 for non-members which includes heavy hors d'oeuvres provided by the Piedmont Club and an open bar. The attire for the 1831 Gala will be black tie optional. On behalf of the 1831 Gala committee, we hope you will join us for this event which is sure to be a great time for a great cause!

Upstate Warrior Solutions

Proceeds generated by the 1831 Gala will support the efforts of Upstate Warrior Solution, to provide counseling and housing services for homeless veterans in our community. Upstate Warrior Solution provides resources for those former service men and women in two key areas, housing and employment. This assistance is critical to provide support for local veterans as they reengage with the challenges of a civilian life.
