We’re honored to share that the Gaylord & Dorothy Donnelley Foundation has just awarded the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission $95,000. The new funding will be used to help us become better advocates for Gullah Geechee heirs property owners around land ownership preservation and conservation challenges.
We’ll also be investing heavily in our ability to partner with Gullah Geechee communities and heritage sites to systematically grow sustainable, Gullah
Geechee heritage tourism in our National Heritage Area.
We thank the Foundation for their critical, financial support and for partnering with us to protect the important heritage of the Gullah Geechee people. Through their grant-making and other tools, the Foundation works to strengthen and sustain the communities of the Lowcountry by supporting equitable and inclusive access and engagement with land, art and collections.
And as always, we thank all of you for the many ways you help us every day to share the story of the Gullah Geechee people across our National Heritage Area.
