Remembering Hayne Hipp
A life dedicated to creating positive change for the people and communities of South Carolina.
A third-generation Greenvillian, Hayne devoted his life to creating positive change for the people and communities of South Carolina. In particular, he supported groups and nonprofit organizations committed to encouraging opportunity and diversity, including helping start the Greenville Urban League (now the Urban League of the Upstate) and the Alliance for Quality Education (now Public Education Partners).
In 2003, Anna Kate (his wife of 57 years) and Hayne, in conjunction with The Aspen Institute co-founded Liberty Fellowship, a network of values-based leaders committed to the betterment of life and opportunity for all citizens of South Carolina.
Anna Kate and Hayne were instrumental in raising funding for the development of the Liberty Bridge in Falls Park which was named for his grandfather Liberty Corporation founder W. Frank Hipp and his family for their commitment and contributions to Greenville.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Fall Park Endowment c/o Community Foundation of Greenville, 630 East Washington Street, Suite A, Greenville, SC 29601
