For over 90 years, you and thousands of team members before you have been committed to and passionate about delivering gracious hospitality to our members and guests. And over recent years, we have heard from those we serve that they would like to share their appreciation for what our team provides.
Because we consider ourselves a family at Sea Island, we understand that sometimes unusual circumstances can create difficult financial situations. There are also times when you or one of your family members may want to pursue educational opportunities that are out of reach financially. These kinds of worries may distract us from providing the Sea Island experience that we are so committed to providing, which can compound the worry.
With these things in mind, the Sea Island Legacy Fund was born.

All hourly and salaried team members who have been employed at Sea Island for a minimum of two years may apply. Each team member can only receive one grant in a given year, and no more than two in a five-year period.
In emergency situations, applying for a grant is not the first line of assistance, but should be done once other options have been explored and utilized.
A committee of nine Sea Island team members from the supervisor to director levels, drawn from across the company, will review grant requests each month or on an emergency basis if needed.
In person interview?
Is there a maximum grant level?
The committee will then pass their recommendations to the Legacy Fund Board for final approval. This volunteer Board includes the President and CEO of Sea Island, the Vice President of Human Resources, five Sea Island Club Members, and two Meeting Planners who have held events at Sea Island over the years.
