The mission of BallenIsles Charities Foundation is to render financial and in-kind support to civic and not-for-profit organizations whose purposes are to provide civic and cultural programs, community and social services, hospital and health services, and education programs designed to assist, encourage and promote the well-being of the residents and the communities in which they are located.
The Board of Directors of BallenIsles Charities Foundation shall award all grants. It shall appoint a committee for the purpose of investigating and recommending worthy recipients for funding. At least 80% of the value of all grants made by the Foundation during any fiscal year shall be allocated to organizations located in and serving individuals in Palm Beach County between Jupiter on the north and West Palm Beach on the south. All recipients of grants from the Foundation must be tax exempt entities under the Internal Revenue code of the United States and Florida State Law.
The BallenIsles Charities Foundation was established in 2011 with the goal of Making a Difference to local not-for-profit organizations in areas surrounding our residential community located in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. The launch of the Foundation underscored a commitment to those civic and tax exempt organizations that make such a difference, not only to our own residents, but to so many of our neighbors in the surrounding cities, towns and communities. Our donors recognized that by working together they could make a significant positive impact providing financial and in-kind support in these areas: Civic, Health & Human Services, Environment, and Education. In our first three years, the BallenIsles Charities Foundation, Inc. has awarded over $1,265,000 to 51 local area organizations.
