Since 1999, the John’s Island Foundation has given over $9.2 million for the capital needs of charitable agencies in Indian River County. This year we have 25 agencies requesting funding which totals over $800,000. These requests include: Tables, chairs, office furniture and building renovations for Crossover Mission; transforming a traditional classroom into a learning lab at the Wabasso School for the Education Foundation; and, Bedbug resistant bedroom furniture and bedding for the Samaritan Center.
The John’s Island Foundation is unique. We raise funds solely through your donations. We do not sell tickets for events, nor do we raise revenue from parties or benefits. Please consider supporting the Foundation through which many well vetted and deserving agencies are served.
The John’s Island Foundation has established the Leadership Circle, which gives special recognition to donors who have shown extraordinary generosity over the previous 12 months:
Leadership Circle Platinum with a gift of $15,000 or over
Leadership Circle Gold with a minimum gift of $10,000
Leadership Circle Silver with a minimum gift of $5,000
The Foundation will recognize the Leadership Circle members in our annual report and celebrates this elite group at an exclusive cocktail party.
