The Volunteer Florida Foundation is a non-profit charity established, organized and operated exclusively as a direct support organization to assist the Florida Commission on Community Service, Volunteer Florida. The Foundation raises funds to aid the Commission in accomplishing its goals of meeting important human needs in Florida. The Foundation’s activities are guided by a voluntary board of directors.
The Volunteer Florida Foundation supports Volunteer Florida’s AmeriCorps, emergency management and volunteer programs. The Foundation also supports special Governor’s initiatives including Florida’s Black History Month and Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations, and awards honoring our state’s outstanding volunteers, veterans and educators.
Donations to the Annual Fund and Corporate Sponsorships support all of the special programs and Governor’s initiatives listed below. Alternatively, donations can be directed toward any of these programs or toward multiple programs. When the annual need of a specified program (or programs) is met, excess funds will be used to support underfunded programs.
