• Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union to donate $100,000 the Good Samaritan-Waverly
Hospital at Allen University
• Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union Welcome Center
• Diversity, Equity and Inclusion training
Columbia, SC | April 1, 2021 – Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union has awarded Allen University
$100,000 to support the renovation of the Good Samaritan-Waverly Hospital Restoration Project.
“As a community-chartered credit union, Palmetto Citizens exists to provide more than just low-cost
financial services. We also look beyond our walls to support many deserving organizations and social causes
in our community, such as the Good-Samaritan Waverly Hospital Restoration Project,” said Nick Wodogaza,
President & CEO of Palmetto Citizens. “We are excited to continue our support of Allen University and look
forward to the completion of this project and witnessing the positive impact it will have on our community
for many years to come.”
The investment into Allen University will assist in renovating the Good Samaritan-Waverly Hospital. The $11
million renovation project will house The Boeing Institute on Civility, which will serve as a permanent
memorial for the Emanuel Nine, the nine individuals who tragically lost their lives on June 17, 2015, when a
gunman entered Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. It will also house the Levett School of
Education, the Dickerson-Green Theological Seminary, the Waverly Wall Museum Portrait Display and the
Dominion Energy Palmetto African American Hall of Fame.
The newly named Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union Welcome Center will be the first stop for visitors
as they enter the Good Samaritan-Waverly Hospital and will be a focal point of the facility upon its
completion.
Allen University President, Dr. Ernest McNealey, has championed the University’s aspiration to
demonstrate expansive service to the greater good. As such, all Palmetto Citizens staff members and officials
will complete the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training program through the Boeing Institute on Civility
at the Good Samaritan-Waverly Hospital, at no charge, within the first three years of its being.
