About Statewide Abstract Foundation
Statewide Abstract Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, hosting their annual golf outing to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in support of their ongoing mission of never charging families of sick children for treatment, travel, housing or food.
This foundation is a charitable extension of Statewide Abstract Corp., a leader in the title insurance business, with a rich heritage built nearly 40 years ago by the Meccia Family. Jim Meccia, Board Chairman, founded Statewide in 1979 and built the company on principles that still characterize our business today: “Stay close to the client and be a good listener. Our job is to make their job easier and effortless.” Statewide began with four employees and a small office in White Plains and as the real estate market continued to prosper, the company successfully grew in response to the emerging needs of both long-term and new clients. In 2007, the company expanded and opened an office in Manhattan as well.
