In January 2021, Indian River Community Foundation’s Community Enrichment Fund awarded the Senior Resource Association with $35,000 to help replace the roof of their Sebastian DayAway facility. The new roof has been built and operations at the facility continue to carry on Senior Resource Association’s mission of providing services and programs designed to promote an active, healthy and independent lifestyle for older adults.
The state-licensed DayAway facility provides care for adults who cannot stay at home independently due to cognitive and/or physical decline. Additionally, the Sebastian Center houses distribution of the Meals on Wheels Program for North County, which delivers more than 13,000 meals each month. For more information about Senior Resource Association and their programs, please go to seniorresourceassociation.org.
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 grantmaking funds, including the Community Enrichment Fund. These valuable resources support the Community Foundation’s mission of building a better community through donor-driven philanthropy.
Indian River Community Foundation was established in 2008 with a mission of building a better community through donor-driven philanthropy. With assets of approximately $90 million in 200 charitable giving accounts, the Community Foundation and its clients have awarded more than $80 million in grants, mostly to nonprofit charitable organizations located in Indian River County, Florida.
