Preserving Our History

Founded in 1985, the Friends are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization established to assist in the preservation and interpretation of Jekyll Island, its natural and historic heritage.

In its early years, members were heavily involved in "hands-on" work in the Historic District. In recent years, the emphasis has switched to support, primarily through funding of enhancement projects selected in conjunction with the JIA Museum. Funds for these projects are generated through membership dues, bequests and fundraising events.

Current major fundraisers are an annual formal "Dinner at the Club" and a charity auction.
