The Ballenisles Charities Foundation, made up of members and residents of Ballenisles Country Club, recently announced that 58 not-for-profit and civic organizations serving the local Palm Beach Gardens community will be recipients of financial grants and two Impact Grants totaling a record $1,348,000.

The funds raised are a credit to the generosity of Ballenlsles residents, local businesses and corporate sponsors, contributions from volunteers, as well as Ballenlsles club management and the community association. Each organization selected for a financial grant was vetted through the application and review process. Organizations receiving grants range from civic programs, health and human services, environmental initiatives to educational programs.

“Our goal at the Ballenisles Charities Foundation is to ‘Make a Difference’ in the local community and help our neighbors in need,” said Ballenisles Charities Foundation President Mark Freeman. “The record-setting amount of $1,348,000 brings the cumulative grants awarded to $8.3 million since the Foundation was formed in 2011. The need is great in Palm Beach County, so that’s why our work will continue.” In addition to monetary donations, through the Ballenisles Community Service Committee, Ballenisles’ residents volunteer at local organizations – from feeding the hungry and building homes with Habitat for Humanity to donating household goods and medical supplies and wrapping presents for children during the holiday season.
