Our passion for building a thoughtful community extends far beyond our members and events. Our mission is to make a positive impact through the support of the following initiatives.
The Southern C donates annually to national causes such as the Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health in Texas, a home to our 2022 and 2024 Retreats and The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign in 2024 where Summit attendees rock their red on the final day and a percentage of each ticket is donated to this worthy cause.
We support local causes in Georgia’s Golden Isles where our annual TSC Summit is held such as:
There is one person near and dear to us that embodied all of these traits throughout her career – Phyllis Hoffman DePiano, the Founder of Hoffman Media. When Phyllis passed away earlier in 2023, the world lost a passionate entrepreneur, a fiercely devoted friend and mentor to many, and most importantly a dedicated mother to one of TSC’s dearest friends – Brian Hart Hoffman.
It is with great love and appreciation, that we announce the annual Phyllis Hoffman DePiano TSC Summit Scholarship sponsored by The Southern Coterie.
The Phyllis Hoffman DePiano Scholarship aims to award a female entrepreneur whose passion and drive echoes the qualities that made Phyllis a powerful voice of creativity and love.
