Volunteer Florida Foundation
The Volunteer Florida Foundation is a non-profit established as a direct support organization for Volunteer Florida. The Foundation raises funds to support Volunteer Florida’s programs, which put national service and volunteers to work in schools and communities across the state. The Foundation also supports special Governor’s initiatives, including Florida’s Black History Month and Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations, as well as honoring our state’s outstanding volunteers, veterans, and educators.
Donations to the Foundation support Volunteer Florida’s important work and the following Governor’s special initiatives:
Black History Month Celebration
Each year, Florida celebrates the important contributions African-Americans have made, and continue to make, to the Sunshine State. At the conclusion of Florida Black History Month, Governor Scott hosts a special event to honor three exemplary African-American educators, along with three student essay contest winners, and two student art winners. Volunteer Florida is grateful for the generosity of all of our sponsors, including the Florida Lottery, a Supporting Sponsor of the Florida Black History Month Celebration.
Florida Disaster Fund Sponsors
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, known as 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.
