Dear fundholders and community partners,

We are pleased to share with you the GiveWell Community Foundation’s 2018-19 Annual Report.

This report highlights the impact made through GWCF throughout our community of Polk, Hardee, and Highlands counties over the last fiscal year, between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019.

Thanks to our generous fundholders, we awarded more grants this fiscal year than ever before! More than one thousand grants were awarded, totaling over $15 million, and 92% of those grants were awarded locally. This brings us to a total of $182 million granted since our inception in 1997, and we look forward to going beyond the $200 million mark very soon.

On behalf of the board of directors and staff at the GiveWell Community Foundation, we are honored to be your philanthropic stewards and partners in building a better community.

Thank you for your continued support of our wonderful community and the GiveWell Community Foundation.
