Gimp does not come with any fonts. It uses the fonts installed in the
system, which might be very many. In linux I can disable many of the
never-used fonts to reduce the number seen by Gimp.

This is reasonably up-to-date and might give a clue to a suitable font
manager.  (w*w* un-mux the url - it
kicked in some sort of protection by the forum software)

Any fonts that *only* you will only use with Gimp should go in your
gimp profile. Something like /Users/MyName/Library/Application
Support/Gimp/2.8/fonts if that is what is used these days.

Thank you :>)

Another thing to look at:  In the GIMP do Edit > Preferences, and pop
open the Folders item.  Click on Fonts and a list of the directories the
GIMP looks for fonts in is presented.  I have "way too many" fonts on my
workstation, so I deleted all but the GIMP's own font folder from the
list, then copied all I fonts I do want the GIMP to see into the
.../gimp-2.8/fonts folder.

I presume the configuration menu in the OSX version of the GIMP should
be very similar to the one described above.
