Dear fundholders and community partners,
Last fiscal year, GiveWell Community Foundation saw record high numbers in grantmaking and new funds. We also collaborated with the United Way of Central Florida to provide COVID-19 relief for nonprofits throughout Hardee, Highlands, and Polk counties through the United Community Relief Fund.
This fiscal year, we continued that trend, once again seeing record-high totals in giving and in growth, while collaborating with UWCF on an exciting new project. Both organizations have invested significant time and resources developing a comprehensive needs assessment for our three shared counties. The needs assessment report will be finalized by the end of 2022. We are very excited to share those results with you as we continue addressing our community’s most pressing needs.
We are also pleased to share this annual report with you. It covers some of our accomplishments throughout the 2021-2022 fiscal year. A few quick highlights include $35 million in grants, 85% of which went to nonprofits within our community; the addition of 46 new charitable funds, which brings us to 383 total funds; and $229 million in total gifts, bringing our total assets to $419 million. These amazing accomplishments are made possible thanks to our generous fundholders and partners throughout our community.
On behalf of the GiveWell Community Foundation Board of Directors and staff, we are very honored to be your philanthropic stewards and partners in building a better community.
Thank you for your continued support of the GiveWell Community Foundation!
