The Foundation, named for Sapelo Island in Georgia, grew out of Richard J. Reynolds’s interest in the barrier island. Its grantmaking is focused on promoting positive social change and protecting natural resources for the benefit of all residents of Georgia. The Foundation awards funds in two categories: environmental protection and social justice. The Foundation’s core values include empowering people who are powerless or marginalized; being strategic and proactive in its funding; encouraging collaborative action and networking; taking risks in grantmaking; sharing experiences with other foundations and potential partners; and convening partners around issues. The Foundation also seeks to serve as a catalyst for new practices and ideas and to respond to other challenges or opportunities that are unique to the state of Georgia. Additional information can be found on the Web site. Applications will not be accepted by fax or e-mail.
