The Living Wright Foundation

Working to eradicate food insecurity in the Midlands of South Carolina

What is our mission?

The Living Wright Foundation’s mission is to eradicate food insecurity in the Midlands by advocating on behalf of, educating, & providing for our community through regenerative farming & gardening techniques. We envision a vibrantly diverse food ecosystem nestled in the Congaree River Basin where visitors can examine their relationship to the land & cultivate healthier food systems.

Our History

Bobby & Dupre Percival

The Living Wright Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded by Robert Wright Percival & his father, Dupre Percival – established in 2021. It is our way of paying forward the good fortune grated to us by our community.

The inspiration of this foundation is the late Reverend Dr. Robert Wright Spears, Robert’s grandfather & namesake. He was a United Methodist Church Minister & president of Columbia College. During his storied career, he devoted considerable efforts to improve the lives of those in need. The work of the Living Wright Foundation is a loving tribue to Dr. Spears & the continuation of his efforts.
