We believe that St Joe is creating communities that will have a long – range impact on the towns and lives of people in the region. The Foundation is funded exclusively by a transfer fee on the sale of real estate in certain communities and resorts St Joe is developing. This fee applies the first time a property is sold, and on each resale.
