BallenIsles Charities Foundation Launches with Vision of Helping to Make a Difference

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. – Nov 15, 2011 – The more than 1500 families residing at BallenIsles have joined together to launch the BallenIsles Charities Foundation, Inc. with a vision of “Helping to Make a Difference.”

“As one of the city’s largest residential communities we have so much to be grateful for in our ongoing relationship with our local community. The launch of this Foundation formally underlines a commitment to give back to our local community and those civic and not-for-profit organizations in Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens and West Palm Beach that make such a difference, not only to our own lives but to so many of our neighbors in the surrounding towns and villages,” said BallenIsles Charities Foundation Inc. President and Founder Fred Corrado.

The new Foundation will render financial and in-kind support to area organizations providing civic and cultural programs, community and social services, hospital, health services and education programs.

The BallenIsles Charities Foundation Inc. will hold its 1st Annual Community Fundraising Event at BallenIsles Country Club Friday, March 30 – Sunday, April 1, 2012 and will seek the support of local merchants.

“By working together with local businesses who share our vision, we believe we can make a significant contribution in supporting local needs. I am heartened by the response from hundreds of volunteers in our community who have graciously stepped up to help bring our vision to reality,” Corrado said.

The BallenIsles Charities Foundation’s first initiative has been to appoint a Committee to investigate and recommend worthy recipients of grant awards. All grant award recipients must be tax exempt entities under the Internal Revenue Code of the United States and Florida State Law.  A 501(c) 3 tax exempt status for the Foundation has been applied for and approval is pending.
