Friends of the Foundation

The Community Foundation is important to the vitality of our community and plays a unique role by attracting, managing, and distributing millions of dollars to improve the lives of local people. The purpose of the Friends of the Foundation campaign is to reach out to charitably inclined leaders, who share our vision. Thanks to the financial support of our “Friends,” the Foundation is able to continue to provide services to donors and support a variety of charitable causes across South Mississippi.
