Since 1999, the John’s Island Foundation has given over $8.4 million for the capital needs of charitable agencies in Indian River County. This year we have 26 agencies requesting funding which totals over $800,000. These requests include: renovations on two group homes for the ARC of IRC; a complete kitchen renovation for Restoration Ministries women’s shelter; and, a commercial air conditioning unit for the Homeless Family 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 revenues from parties or benefits. Please consider supporting the Foundation through which many well vetted and deserving agencies are served.
