The Gulf Coast Community Foundation is a public charity dedicated to the progressive development of worthy causes, providing donor services, and promoting and providing leadership in response to changing community needs.
The Foundation is a vehicle for charitable giving through which individuals, families, corporations, non-profit organizations and private foundations can meet charitable objectives in the fields of education, arts and culture, historic preservation, neighborhood enrichment, and health and human services.
The Foundation meets this mission by developing and managing a comprehensive base of endowment funds - an expanding pool of charitable dollars, permanently committed to meeting the needs of the people of South Mississippi.
Florence Norman founded Sweet Cavanagh, an award-winning peer-led aftercare social enterprise based in Notting Hill. The company hires women and trains them how to make and design jewelry. However, these women are in the process of recovering from eating disorders and addictions.
