IRCF Awards Feed the Lambs $15,000
Founded in 2004, Feed the Lambs has a mission to provide education, recreation, workforce development, and mentorship services for underprivileged children, youth, and young adults at no cost who would otherwise be unable to obtain those services.
Indian River Community Foundation recently awarded Feed the Lambs $15,000 to help support their Enrichment program. Feed the Lambs (FTL) Enrichment Program addresses the needs of youth in Indian River County, focusing on improved academic achievement. Free of charge, FTL offers disadvantaged children (ages 6-14) after school tutoring, counseling and one-to-one mentoring. FTL programs improve scholastic abilities, build confidence, reduce risky behaviors, and decrease the number of children being left alone without custodial care. The program takes place in south Indian River County serving one of the lowest socioeconomic pockets, comprised of the highest number of at-risk children and youth.
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.
