Although you may not be planning that far ahead, please give some thought to contributing a small amount of your time and talents by joining one of the John’s Island Foundation’s Site Review teams next year. In January, each team usually visits three charitable agencies in Indian River County who have requested a Foundation grant to meet their capital needs. This year we have scheduled team visits to twenty-eight of these agencies. The purpose of each visit is to evaluate the request and to report to the Foundation Board how much of the grant, if any, should be given. As a team member, you met the principals of the charity and see first-hand what they do and who benefits from their work. It only takes a couple of hours for each visit and past site team members have found the experience to be enlightening and rewarding. The John’s Island Foundation provides only for capital needs of charitable agencies in Indian River County and compliments the work of the John’s Island Community Service League and United Way who provide funding for operations.
