The Gulf Coast Community Foundation is a public charity dedicated to the progressive development of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Its primary mission is to increase philanthropy to worthy causes by providing donor services, grants and leadership for problem solving. The Foundation meets this mission by developing and managing a comprehensive base of permanent funds — an expanding pool of charitable dollars, committed to meeting the needs of the people of South Mississippi.
The Foundation carries out donor wishes by making grants in the area of arts, civic affairs, education, health and human services, and recreation. With the use of undesignated donations, special attention can be given to meeting the new and emerging needs of our continually changing population.
