Girls on the Run recently completed their 2019-2020 running season with a virtual 5K Celebration Event. Despite the recent COVID-19 health pandemic, the season proved to be their most successful one yet with a record number of girls enrolled in their running program.
Indian River Community Foundation’s Community Enrichment Fund supported scholarship participation which enrolled 30 additional girls who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to be a part of the program. While most of the Community Foundation’s grants are awarded by clients through donor advised funds, Indian River Community Foundation’s competitive grant program is made possible through the generosity of anonymous donors to several grant making funds, including the Community Enrichment Fund and the Better Giving Fund. These resources support the Community Foundation’s mission of building a better community through donor-driven philanthropy.
