Our Mission

A Truly Sustainable Culture that is Environmentally Conscious and Socially Just

The Noisette Foundation is a catalyst for collaborative neighborhood redevelopment in North Charleston. The Foundation identifies local community strengths, listens closely to residents and promotes successful local projects. It studies persistent social problems and works to enhance neighborhood problems solving through research, advocacy and the development of relevant solutions.

The neighborhoods of North Charleston must offer each citizen a healthy pathway to lifelong learning, career development, housing, an appreciation for our coastal environment, local art and culture and the deep satisfaction that comes from contributing to one’s community through service in the interest of others.


The mission of the Foundation includes improving the opportunity for quality education, promoting human growth and literacy and artistic expression, developing new career pathways to success, and sharing an understanding and appreciation of the local environment and sustainable living practices, thereby inspiring deep civic pride and love for all corners of the city. To this end, the Foundation serves as a facilitative, umbrella organization for many of the nonprofit entities in the area and assists in the coordination of various community activities.
