The Brandon Foundation Story
Since 2003, the Greater Brandon Community Foundation’s focus has been to raise funds and distribute those dollars to local charities.
In 2006, we launched the Foundation Angel Program which helps families in the Greater Brandon Community who have suffered a catastrophic event or life-threatening illness. We match individuals with local business owners with available resources to meet practical needs as well as provide financial assistance to help families with utility bills to keep them on their feet during their time of crisis. Since 2006, we have served over 500 families in a number of ways.
Since its inception, the Brandon Foundation has given back over $2,000,000 in grants, goods and services to our community.
Our signature events and programs have enabled us to fulfill our mission to ”improve the qualify of life and shape the future of our community.”
Each year, the Foundation hosts events and participates in fundraisers in the community.
Our signature events include:
- The Charity Golf Classic & Celebrity Pairings Party
- The Evening of Hope
The Brandon Foundation also participated as the supporting sponsor for the Honorary Mayor’s Race of Brandon, partnered with the Boys & Girls Club for the first annual “Tampa Bay Fishing Tournament”, held “A Night in Venice Masquerade Ball”. In addition, the Foundation partners with local restaurants and businesses to provide opportunities for the community together throughout the year.
