The Charleston World Heritage Coalition is pleased to announce that Charleston-based insurance firm Mappus Insurance has made a generous donation in support of Charleston’s effort to obtain World Heritage status for historic sites in the Lowcountry. The $2,500 donation is the first of two installments Mappus has pledged to contribute throughout the course of the year.
“There are many things in the world that we can learn and read about,” says Andrew Muller, president of Mappus Insurance. “But when it comes to the history of Charleston, we can actually touch, feel and see the history right in front of us. Having the ability to ‘live’ history is very powerful and something all should be able to do.”
Muller, a College of Charleston alumnus, is the newest addition to the CWHC board, a diverse group of community leaders dedicated to showcasing Charleston’s global historic significance. “To share the beautiful history of Charleston with the world through a world-class organization in UNESCO is an honor and privilege to us as a community. As someone who specializes in insuring historic properties, historic preservation is at the top of my list.”
