Do you constantly receive requests for donations? Maybe your business is inundated with sponsorship opportunities, and with so many needs, it’s hard to know where to start. The Community Foundation for Ocala/Marion County can help.
As our community’s hub for nonprofits, our network of partnerships makes it easy to support and sustain causes that strengthen our community—all while enhancing the quality of life for everyone in Marion County. For you, it’s all about creating a giving philosophy for you or your business. And we are experts in helping you get there.
Whether you are looking to impact a specific target area or don’t know where to begin, our team can help create focus areas of influence where your resources can make the most difference. Once we get involved, it will be easy to know when to say “yes” and how to say “no.” At the Community Foundation, our mission is “Growing our community’s people and passions for powerful purposes.” We don’t just plant the seeds for change. We cultivate the relationships to ensure you’re doing the most good and seeing the greatest reward.
“It all starts with a meeting with our team where we talk through your interests,” says Lauren Deiorio, president and executive director. “What inspires you to give? When have you felt good about a donation you sent? How do you want to see results when you give? How has a particular cause impacted your family or business? Answers to those questions and many more help to create a giving philosophy and we can then guide you to where you can make the impact you want.”
With the network and resources the Community Foundation has to offer, you’re going to be able to support and sustain the causes that matter to you and strengthen our community. We’re going to make it easy. Contact us to start raising the quality of life for everyone in Marion County.
