Best Philanthropist

Anita Zucker

Consistently ranked as South Carolina’s wealthiest person, InterTech Group CEO Anita Zucker has been putting her fortune to good use for as long as we can remember. According to InterTech’s “Giving Back” web page, the company is bullish on the concept of tikkun olam (Hebrew for “repairing the world”), and as head of that company, Zucker has devoted some serious time and money to that creed. The Jerry and Anita Zucker Family Foundation gave away $2 million in 2013 alone, and Zucker has served on the boards of numerous Charleston-area nonprofit organizations including the Charleston Promise Neighborhood, Tri-County Cradle-to-Career Collaborative, MUSC Foundation, and Coastal Community Foundation. With her passion for evidence-based solutions to poverty and social problems, Zucker is like Charleston’s own Bill Gates.
