SAGA COMMUNITY FOCUS

SAGA Community Foundation on the Outer Banks

SAGA Community Focus (SCF) was formed in 2013 and was developed from a desire of the founders of SAGA Realty & Construction to give back to the community in which they operate and make their home. The activities of the organization, now officially a 501(3c), are still driven by that same desire.

OUR MISSION

Our Mission at SAGA Community Focus (SCF) is to enhance the Northeastern NC region, specifically the Outer Banks through community outreach, awareness programs, and charitable donations.

We aspire to collaborate and partner with existing charitable organizations in an effort to strengthen their current platform and help increase sustainability. We also identify needs of the local area that are currently not being adequately met and implement initiatives to fill in these gaps.

HOW WE DO IT

SAGA Community Focus looks forward to being one of the go-to organizations to increase the level of support to the greater Outer Banks community and assist in meeting their needs! The goal is to identify additional community needs that are not presently being met, as well as continuing to partner with organizations that have been supported by SAGA Realty & Construction in the past, prior to SCF’s creation. This support will be provided through direct support to SCF by SAGA Realty & Construction, as well as by soliciting funds from the community via challenges similar to the AED program initiated in 2013.

Other charitable requests from the existing nonprofit community will be considered for assistance, with the expectation that SCF can leverage SAGA Realty & Construction’s sizable number of business connections in order to boost awareness for local charitable causes and help increase charitable giving from the entire community through good-natured fundraising competition between businesses.

In the future, should an unmet, charitable need present itself in way that would allow SCF to become involved without providing wholly duplicative services, SCF has considered the need to create a new direct-services program or initiative at that time.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

SCF believes in a ‘hands on’ approach in the community. As such, they have learned that continued involvement should be both sincere and come with a long-term outlook.
