Indian River Insights from Vero Beach Magazine
In partnership with Vero Beach Magazine, Indian River Community Foundation’s President and CEO, Jeff Pickering, writes a monthly column called Indian River Insights. These articles explore the root causes of community needs, celebrate successes, analyze meaningful solutions, and offer insights into persistent challenges. In the July 2022 Edition of the Vero Beach Magazine, Pickering considers the community commitment needed to ensure that all students have the opportunity and support system they need to set them on the pathway toward college and career success.
"With more than half of all Indian River County residents living either in poverty or just one paycheck away from it, promoting more access to advanced courses, career and technical training, and post-secondary education for all—especially minority students—is more important now than ever."

Indian River Insights works in conjunction with Indian River Indicators. Indian River Indicators was launched in June 2021 and originated after the completion of the 2019 Indian River Community Needs Assessment. It provides key data and information about our community that is updated annually and can be used to support and sustain proven programs. It can also be used by community leaders to develop policy, promote promising practices and inspire innovation that can lead to solutions to persistent community challenges. Indian River Community Foundation holds informational sessions on the first Tuesday of every month at 4pm via Zoom to introduce the community to this new resource. Please email Foundation Coordinator, Brooke Sauserman at email@example.com to attend a session.
