Our Portfolio Manager, R.P. Boggs & Co.

Long-term benefit to our community relies on sound investment planning provided since 2004 at no charge by our investment management partner, R.P. Boggs & Co., a wealth management firm in Lake Wylie. The originally established investment policy is still in effect today and continues to inform fiduciary decision making in support of long-term growth with specific criteria for fund growth evaluation. Chief Investment Officer Robert Paul Boggs also served on the River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Community Foundation’s original board.

R.P. Boggs & Co. supplies the Foundation with both quarterly and year to date appraisals and performance reports.

Boggs said he has valued the experience to serve the community through River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Foundation fund management. “We are trying to do what anyone else involved is doing: to be partners in our community and to leave a legacy.”


River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Club

Originally chartered in 1975, the local chapter of Lions Club International has grown to be the largest Lions Club in South Carolina and North Carolina. River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions volunteer for hundreds of assignments to support our charities throughout the year. Assignments range from collecting used golf balls, which are sent to our veterans overseas, to mentoring students in the Clover School District or collecting used eyeglasses and hearing aids.

This active service organization coordinates many successful fundraisers to support and sustain several local and regional charities. In order to nurture and grow their charitable giving, the River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Club formed two separate non-profits: River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Charities Inc. and River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Community Foundation.

River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Charities Inc.

Created from the River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Club, the River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Charities Inc. non-profit was formed to carefully review and select the charitable organizations that receive annual funding from both the local Lions Club and the River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Community Foundation. The Charities Budget Committee seeks and evaluates annual submissions from interested charities, confirms 501(c)(3) status and reviews both needs and specific planned use of charitable funds.

The River Hills/Lake Wylie Charities Inc. committee divides funds into three funded regions: Local, State and International. Charities within these regions are further segmented into the service and budget areas of Community Assistance, Health Services, Education Services, Humanitarian Services and Administrative Expense. After careful evaluation, the Charities committee submits funds distribution recommendations to the River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Club Board of Directors for approval.
