These goals are:
  • Foster public awareness of and appreciation for the history of Gullah Geechee people and their contributions.
  • Enhance the quality of life for current and future generations of Gullah Geechee people within the Corridor.
  • Protect, preserve, and restore tangible and intangible natural and cultural resources in communities and other areas that are of cultural and historical significance to Gullah Geechee people. (Page 22, Management Plan)

We encourage partnerships that will support the Commission’s vision, mission and goals as outlined in our Management Plan through specific programs and projects. These programs should benefit organizations and members of the community by building capacity and outreach to work together to attain our goals. Partners assist us in implementing the Corridor’s programs focused on education, economic development, community sustainability and documentation and preservation of resources.

There are two types of partnerships:  a project or program specific partnership and a site specific partnership. Instructions for completing and submitting a partnership application are included in the application document. Applications are reviewed by a committee and applicants will be notified on the status of their application after review.
