Since 1928, our team has sought to provide you with the most gracious hospitality of any resort in the world. If you heard “welcome home” from any of our team when you first arrived, it’s because we consider ourselves family and we wish to welcome you into our home. This feeling of family is due in part to our legacy of long-serving team members. Sea Island formed the Quarter Century Club in 1953, and today we have more than 100 active members, several with 50 plus years of service. We firmly believe our team members and their commitment to providing gracious hospitality is what differentiates us from other resort destinations.
While the COVID-19 pandemic may be a singular event, it is a stark reminder of the impact that unexpected economic hardship has during turbulent times. To assist Sea Island team members with unforeseen economic troubles, I am excited to announce that a long-term goal — The Sea Island Legacy Fund — is now a reality.
This fund is designed to help team members who have experienced a unique, severe economic situation. The fund will pay a bill(s) to a vendor, utility provider, healthcare provider, etc., on behalf of the team member. We chose the word “legacy” for a reason. It is our hope that team members who receive
this financial assistance will, in turn, seek to make their mark on Sea Island through their continuing commitment and service to our guests, members, and fellow team members.
The Legacy Fund will be held and managed by the Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation, and collectively we have partnered with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to manage the application and approval process. If you have an interest in making a contribution to the Sea Island Legacy Fund, you may do so by contacting the Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation directly at 912-268-2561, go to www.coastalgeorgiafoundation.org/donors/current-funding-opportunities, or mail your contribution directly to the Foundation offices at 1626 Frederica Road, St. Simons Island, GA 31522 (please write Sea Island Legacy Fund on the memo line).
I appreciate your consideration of the Sea Island Legacy Fund.
President & CEO, Sea Island
