2022-2024 Strategic Plan

In November of 2021, recognizing that the Strategic Plan adopted in 2018 was, in many ways, still relevant, the Board of Directors of the Foundation engaged in a day-long strategic review work session and decided to use that plan as a basis for an update for the next three years. The three core thematic goals that will be carried over into the 2022-2024 plan focus on the Foundation’s Sustainability, Scope and Scale, and Significance.

The 2022-2024 Plan will continue to focus on three core thematic goals established previously. They are

Sustainability: Creating lasting value for donors and the community through sound organizational management, and strong asset development and investment.

Scope and Scale: Grow the Foundation's regional impact through work with nonprofit organizations, professional advisors and other philanthropy partners. 

Significance: Strengthening the relevance and role of the Foundation’s work in our communities through strategic messaging, prominent public exposure and consistent brand positioning.

The coming few years are pivotal. We are intensely committed to continuing to forward our mission of strengthening our communities through engaged philanthropy.

We've Moved!


As you are probably aware, the Foundation staff has grown to 4 during the last few years. Though this has allowed us to expand the services we provide, it has resulted in a very congested office space. We are pleased to announce that, after 10 years in our Frederica Road office on St. Simons Island, the Foundation has moved to new offices in Downtown Brunswick. The Foundation’s new addresses are below: 

Physical Address:
1316 Newcastle Street, Suite 201
Brunswick, GA 31520

Mailing Address:
P.O. Box 2463
Brunswick, GA 31521
