Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for, but not limited to, the encouragement of art and to further education.


Established in 2005 in MS - In his last will and testament, dated Sept. 4, 1975, E.H. Bacot of Pascagoula, MS, expressed his gratitude for having been blessed with an accumulation of this world’s goods and he desired to benefit the “good people of Mississippi” with any excess after ample provisions were made for his wife, Bertha Bacot. Accordingly, after Mr. Bacot’s death, Mrs. Bacot formed the Bacot Foundation, Inc. Jolly P. McCarty was known throughout the Gulf Coast for his generous donation of time and energy to many charities and organizations. At the time of his unfortunate death, he was enthusiastically serving as Secy.-Treas. for the Bacot Foundation. The family and numerous friends of Jolly McCarty noted the similarity and compatibility of the causes Jolly P. McCarty and the Bacot Foundation, Inc., supported. Accordingly, as a way to perpetuate these mutually shared causes, they were merged into the renamed Bacot/McCarty Foundation, Inc.
