Dripping Springs-based title company Corridor Title presented its annual $25,000 grant to Austin Sunshine Camps on Thursday as part of its philanthropic Corridor Title Cares program. The grant will allow ASC to expand access to its after-school program to 20 additional Fulmore Middle School students this academic year.

ASC provides outdoor and educational summer camp and after-school programs for low-income students. The Corridor Title grant will allow the organization to increase enrollment in its Fulmore Middle School after-school program from 50 to 70 students.

The Young Men's Business League founded ASC in 1928 in response to the rising threat of youth tuberculosis. Conventional wisdom held that exposure to sunshine would help those afflicted recover from the disease. Today, the organization has served more than 48,000 youths in Central Texas.

"We are able to reach our youth at a critical time in their lives when they are most vulnerable to negative influences," YMBL Board President Daniel Becka said in a news release. "ASC focuses all of its programmatic goals on equipping the youth served with knowledge to break the cycle of poverty and experience success as young adults."

Title Corridor Cares chose ASC from a group of 27 nonprofit candidates nominated by 187 local real estate professionals.

"The local real estate community has many unsung heroes who donate countless hours and resources to nonprofits throughout Central Texas," Corridor Title President Patrick Rose said in the release. "Corridor Title seeks to meaningfully recognize these hardworking individuals who make a difference in the lives of others every day."

Corridor Title is a locally owned, independent business with offices in Austin, Dripping Springs, San Marcos and New Braunfels.
