Many of our neighbors on Johns and Wadmalaw Islands lack potable water, experience poor health and suffer from hunger, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last ten years, the Exchange Club of Kiawah-Seabrook has been able to raise over $1 million to support local charities and in 2020, we were able to donate over $182,000 to support our local community. Of that, $48,050 was raised for our Hunger Project to support local food banks that provide meals for many families affected by the pandemic. The source of these funds was primarily the Exchange Club of Kiawah-Seabrook Foundation.
The Foundation was created three years ago to add to the revenue generated from advertising sales for the Exchange Club Handbook Directory so that we can better serve the community. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax-exempt for the donor. We accept contributions of cash, appreciated securities, and matching gifts as well as bequests.
The needs of the community have never been greater and we graciously ask for your support so that we can help meet these needs. Gifts can be unrestricted where the Club will direct the gift to one of the many charities that we support or you can make a restricted gift where your contribution will go to the charity of your choice.
