Creating a Better Community
With generous donations and community participation in events, we have been able to increase the Foundation’s investment in the community and building reserves for the future. In 2019, we received donations of $29,704 and more than $60,000 from our gala auction. Program support was $22,855. We’ve set aside $106,000 in donor-designated reserve funds to ensure future program funding.
Created in 2016 to invest in our South Key community, The Longbranch Foundation is
a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, qualified for grants and donor tax benefits. The Foundation is managed and staffed by volunteers and is affiliated with The Longbranch Improvement Club.
Our mission is to promote and enable educational opportunities for our youth, to maintain the area’s history, to improve the Filucy Bay environment and to generally improve the quality of life for the KP community. One of the biggest needs is the care and well-being of our children. Our popular every-other-year auction is 100%-dedicated to funding educational programs for local students.
