As the holiday season gets underway, The John’s Island Foundation would like to express our gratitude to all the donors in our community who have made our work possible. On December first, Foundation President Jim Johnson and his wife Sandy hosted a reception for Leadership Circle donors (those whose gifts were $5,000 or more). On January 30th, the Annual Donor Reception will be held at the Golf Club starting at 6pm. The reception is funded by our generous sponsors to date: The Hill Group; The Law Offices of John E. Moore, III; and Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Audi of Melbourne. All current donors (those who have contributed between 6/1/15 and 12/31/16 will be invited to attend.
This past year we have been able to award more than $550,000 to fund capital projects for 21 charitable agencies in Indian River County.
One of the agencies supported by the John’s Island Foundation is The Learning Alliance This agency was established in 2012 with the goal of having most third graders in Indian River County reading on grade level. JIF was able to contribute $50,000 to buy educational equipment and books for their resource library and pre-kindergarten learning program.
Thank you all for supporting John’s Island Foundation. We hope that you will consider joining one of our site review teams in the coming year to learn more about the needs of our local community.
