Emergency Needs Fund ready and waiting

We were spared by Hurricane Dorian, but it will not be the last time a hurricane disrupts our lives and damages our precious coastal assets. The Community Emergency Needs Fund of the Coastal Georgia Foundation is a local financial resource for when disasters happen. 

Stakeholders fund residential market study

The Coastal Georgia Foundation has commissioned a thorough and comprehensive assessment of residential market potential in downtown Brunswick. The study has been funded by seven stakeholders who donated a total of $30,000 to the effort. Read The Brunswick News July 23 editorial on the issue

“We learned about this type of data-driven housing study on our May 30 trip to Macon,” says Paul White, President & CEO of the Coastal Georgia Foundation. “There, the housing study said downtown Macon could absorb ‘200 residential units per year.’ This number became a shared goal for developers, entrepreneurs, lenders and other investors in downtown Macon. We’ve been hearing from our local stakeholders that market data for Brunswick could similarly inform a residential strategy for a vibrant and diverse downtown.”
