Mission: The mission of givewell community foundation is to champion charitable giving to improve the quality of life in the areas we serve, both for now and for future generations.
Programs: The community foundation embraces an umbrella concept. Its goal is to improve the quality of life in all areas of polk, hardee, and highlands counties. It does this by serving three constituencies: 1) donors: for people who love the community and have a desire to give something back to their community, the foundation provides qualified counsel, guidance and stewardship in helping them meet their charitable goals; 2) local non- profit charities: the foundation distributes monies in accordance with donor desires. In addition, it provides support for specific programs and offers assistance in managing individual endowment funds. 3) the community at large: the foundation and its board serve as a catalyst with polk, hardee,and highlands counties in addressing the needs of our community. Through grant making by donors, the foundation reaches out to a broad spectrum including the arts, youth, education, health, social services and more.
we help donors and charitable organizations build a better community.
