Started in March 2018 by Moss Creek volunteers, the Fund set a goal of raising $10,000 in 2018.  Contributions from residents far exceeded expectations.  In its first year, the Fund received $23,375 in contributions, with $12,000 in donations coming late 2018.

Due to the generosity of Moss Creek residents, the Fund contributed $4,000 to the Red Cross of the Lowcountry for hurricane recovery, $1,800 to Family Promise of Beaufort County to aid homeless families, $1,252 to the Children's Center of Hilton Head for their infant care room, and $1,500 to the Hilton Head Symphony in 2018.

In March 2019, the Fund held the first Moss Creek Charitable Fund golf tournament to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Bluffton and awarded a grant of $15,000.

In April 2019, the Moss Creek Women's Association organized a Fashion Show to benefit Hopeful Horizons to support counseling for abused children and women.  The Moss Creek Charitable Fund awarded a grant of $5,000.

In November 2019, a tennis event is planned to benefit Special Olympics.  Also in November, the Fund will host its annual wine fundraiser at Moss Creek to benefit local charities.  Since its inception, Moss Creek residents and sponsors have contributed $48,000 to the Charitable Fund, with the Fund awarding $28,500 in grants with more to come!
