History

A subsidiary company of Hollingsworth Funds Inc., Verdae Development Inc. was born of generosity and a passion for the community. When the late John D. Hollingsworth Jr. passed away in 2000, the bulk of his self-made fortune, valued at some $290 million, was passed to the Hollingsworth Funds with the specific charge to foster good works in perpetuity. In time, Verdae Development Inc. was created to manage the Verdae project – a 1,100-acre community development plan whose proceeds will directly benefit the people of Greenville County.  For more information about Hollingsworth Funds, visit http://www.hollingsworthfunds.org.
