IRCF Awards Boys & Girls Clubs of IRC $35,000

Established in 2000, the Boys and Girls Club of Indian River County works to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible citizens.

Indian River Community Foundation recently awarded the Boys and Girls Clubs $35,000 to help retrofit two, 2016 school buses with roof mounted air conditioning units so that drivers and members may travel around the county in comfort. This improvement will help retain drivers and will allow for taking the children to more extracurricular activities and field trips during the summer. The children will have increased exposure and opportunities for activities they might not otherwise have.

Indian River Community Foundation’s discretionary grantmaking is aligned with a vision of a more healthy, prosperous, and generous Indian River County community. Grantmaking priorities are informed by the findings of the most recent community needs assessment and the most current data and information collected on Indian River Indicators.

IRCF is holding informational sessions for nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations serving Indian River County who are interested in applying for a competitive grant. If interested, please call 772.492.1407 or email Brooke Sauserman to reserve your spot. Please read our Guidelines before registering.
