The Mission of the Brandon Foundation is to improve the quality of life and shape the future of our community by creating public awareness, developing resources and supporting initiatives that address local needs.
Our vision is to provide a link between those with resources and those who need help, to mobilize individuals to become active partners in the building of a better community and to be a permanent resource for the needs of our community’s future.
We propose to strengthen our community by:
- Serving as a leader, catalyst and resource for philanthropy
- Provide direct support to individuals and families in need through the Brandon Foundation Angel Program
- Partnering and strengthening local non-profit organizations
- Provide opportunities for young adults to contribute to their community through the Brandon Foundation Junior Angel Program
- Facilitating the pairings of qualified volunteers with the organization’s needs
- Providing flexible and cost-effective ways for donors to benefit their community
- Participating in coalitions with other community groups
- Building endowments to help meet future community needs

The Brandon Foundation has been supporting local charities since its inception in 2003. We are very proud of the enormous impact they have made in our community and we are stronger due to their accomplishments.
The Foundation is committed to fulfilling our mission to create public awareness, develop resources and support initiatives that address local needs. We accomplish this by being a resource for families, connecting with our local charities and partnering with other organizations to meet the needs in our community.
Since 2006, the Foundation Angel Program has filled the gap for families in temporary crisis due to a life threatening disease or catastrophic event. In order to have a greater impact on families, the Foundation will continue to raise funds to provide direct family support to families enrolled in the Foundation Angel Program and by partnering with local charities to connect families in need with their services.
Since its inception, the Foundation Angel program has assisted over 400 families. Realizing that money is not the only thing needed during a time of crisis, our Foundation Angels help to meet the practical needs of many families and individuals by matching the services and contributions of local businesses, individuals and community volunteers.
Examples can include: a lawn care company that maintains the lawn of a patient receiving chemotherapy; a restaurant that provides a gift certificate for the patient or caregiver; or a tradesman offering services such as plumbing, roofing, AC repair, electrical, etc. Individuals and teams have also pulled together to lend support to those affected emotionally and physically. No need is too great or small.
Our Foundation Angels are very fulfilled as they give back to the community, utilizing resources or services available to them and are pleased to have a way of helping others through these times of crisis.
The Brandon Foundation invites you to join us in this effort, as we are always in need of “Foundation Angels” who are able to provide services to families at a reduced price or as an “in-kind” donation.
