The Alys Foundation

The Alys Foundation

The Alys Foundation was established to provide funding for the purpose of sustaining the long-term community values of Alys Beach. The funds from The Alys Foundation are used to enhance the experiences of our families and to preserve and enhance the quality of life of our community members. Our primary focus is the town of Alys Beach, but we also focus our initiatives in the Walton County community at large. Some examples might include funding to build a nature-learning center for children, a performing-arts venue, a library, or an art museum. This might also include spending on things such as musical events, films, lectures, or poetry readings.
