Wexford Charitable Foundation

“It is with pleasure and great hope that I announce the formation of your Wexford Plantation Charitable Foundation. We have all witnessed the caring and compassion of our friends in Wexford. The willingness to reach out to help those having a difficult time, seems to be present at every turn. It is with this spirit that the Wexford Plantation Charitable Foundation has been created to embolden the idea of philanthropy within our community both collectively and individually." -- Jim Hicks, Chairman of the Board, 2012

These words which capture the essence of the Foundation’s mission were used to describe the new Charitable Foundation in a letter to the members of Wexford Plantation. The support received from the many members who have become involved in the Foundation, has allowed Wexford to make a positive difference to the lives of many in Beaufort County, and especially right here on Hilton Head Island. Whether it is the Alzheimer’s patient and caregiver for whom we provide respite care or the homeless family with children that we help to provide housing, the grants from the Foundation are doing wonderful work, and its success has been a positive light that shines from Wexford.

Since its inception six years ago, the Wexford Charitable Foundation has granted over $750,000 to local charities as the result of members’ generous donations and support of their fundraising events. This year 24 well-deserving charities received grants at our Annual Awards’ Luncheon in February. In addition, the Foundation awarded a Major Impact Grant to Family Promise of Beaufort County for the purchase of a vehicle to transport families to and from shelter facilities and the client’s school, work or other appointments.
