GIVING BACK

The Savannah Food & Wine Festival is presented by the Tourism Leadership Council, a non-profit 501-(c) 6 that benefits educational opportunities for students in hospitality programs of study at colleges and universities in the Coastal Empire. The festival recently created its own Foundation, the Coastal Hospitality Education Foundation, a non-profit 501-(c) 3 organization for additional individual, foundation and corporate partner charitable giving programs, sponsorships and opportunities.

 

The festival has given and/or helped raise over $150,000 to local, Savannah non-profit organizations since the

festival's inception in 2013. Some of those organizations have included:

  • Bethesda Academy
  • Patrick Ansley Williams Scholarship Fund, Savannah Technical College
  • Savannah Harbor Foundation
  • TLC Scholarship Fund
  • Two Hundred Club of the Coastal Empire
  • James Beard Foundation
  • United Way of the Coastal Empire
  • West Broad Street YMCA

In addition to raising funds for the festival's Coastal Hospitality Education Foundation for educational scholarship opportunities, several of the festival events will showcase charity partners in raising funds and awareness - 100% of the proceeds from many of the events will go directly to the charity partner!
