ANNUAL DONOR RECEPTION

The John’s Island Foundation proudly celebrated its 20th anniversary on January 27 in the JI Club ballroom, with over 350 loyal donors in attendance. The Foundation honored founder and first president Ellie McCabe by donating a special $50,000 grant to the Gifford Youth Achievement Center (GYAC) for a new mental health guidance office. The outpouring of generosity from Foundation donors allows us to provide dozens of significant capital grants to local nonprofit agencies serving those in need each year, and we are so very grateful for your support!
