Grants Awarded by Year

Year Organization Amount Purpose
2023 All Faiths Food Bank $13,590 Funds used to provide hundreds of meals to underprivileged residents of North port, FL.
2023 Awaken Outreach Center $2,750 Awaken Outreach Center is requesting funds to purchase 5,000 heavy bags for packaging and distributing canned goods at the Outreach Center Food Pantry. 5,000 bags will cover approximately six months of food distribution for the Center.
2023 Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast $5,990 Within the umbrella of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast’s (BBBSSC), a One to One Mentoring Program called Gateways to Graduation (GTG) helps at-risk middle and high school students remain in school, earn grade level promotion, and graduate middle and high school with a viable plan for higher education and/or a career that will provide financial stability. GTG is BBBSSC's signature dropout prevention program that serves students who have been identified by school personnel as unlikely to graduate or earn grade level promotion. The Agency nurtures a mentoring relationship between one at-risk youth and one adult volunteer, who are matched based on compatibility and needs. Mentors in the GTG program provide weekly, one -to-one mentoring on each student's school campus, helping the youth to become academically motivated and to develop planning skills and goals. In addition to requesting $5,000 GTG support for North Port at-risk youth, as part of this request for funding to support GTG in North Port, BBBSSC requests funding for an iPad to support our youth. For many youth, arranging visits to the North Port BBBSSC office is complex, particularly for the many parents/guardians that work 2 jobs, and the students that work after school or help at home with younger siblings. Although Mentor Managers meet with youth, families, mentors, and school staff off-site, they do not have access to a digital record-keeping device. As such, BBBSSC requests full funding for one iPad so that its North Port Mentor Manager will have the capacity to create a digital record of all pertinent information when meeting off-site, as well as for volunteer recruitment, affording a paperless recordkeeping process. Attached please find an iPad quote for $750. To utilize the iPad, BBBSSC requests funding for a one-year Verizon Data Plan for the iPad. Verizon Wireless serves BBBSSC, and its unlimited data plan is $240 per year per iPad. Upon the 1-year expiration, BBBSSC will continue to fund the data plan through the execution of its development plan, including portfolio management, donor stewardship, relationship cultivation, grant support, and fundraising events.
2023 Boys & Girls Club North Port $5,000 Funding from this request will support Club memberships to our Great Futures Academy for families attending our Gene Matthews Boys & Girls Club in North Port who could not otherwise afford our bare minimum fees. This will provide at least two full-year scholarships and one partial scholarship to families and provide the youth with full access to our slate of programs designed to help them succeed in school, develop positive character and leadership, implement healthy habits, explore the arts, and receive college and career guidance. Our membership fees only cover a fraction of the actual cost to the organization to serve a child. However, many families do not have an income level that allows them to pay those. This is why many of our families pay nothing at all. However, the cost to our organization for a full year of service per child is roughly $2,000. This includes snacks, meals, homework help, tutoring, enrichment activities, structured play and so much more.
2023 Child Protection Center $5,000 The Child Protection Center is requesting grant funds from the Heron Creek Community Foundation to support their personal safety and community awareness program the prevention arm of CPC's mission they typically serve 19,750 clients that live in North Port FL and estimate this grant will help more than 20,000 during our 2024 fiscal year.
2023 Family Promise of South Sarasota County $5,000 Family Promise of South Sarasota County (FPSSC) requests funding to support Emergency Shelter, Rent Assistance, Diversion, and Emergency Funds for housing insecure North Port children and their parent(s).

In addition to access to physicians, Sarasota County patients also receive diagnostic testing and treatment by medical specialists through our collaborative work with the Sarasota Memorial Community Specialty Clinic. This represents comprehensive medical care at no cost to patients. The estimated cost of providing these services to North Port patients for the coming year is $8,364. This grant is requesting funding for 26 North Port patients ($4,182) that will cover their medical care for 12 months of the year 2024.
2023 Literacy Volunteers of South Sarasota County $2,900 Grant funds will be used to cover the costs for a Website re-design. A smaller portion of funds requested will be used to purchase updated marketing materials, such as: marketing banners and brochures. LVSSC currently uses WIX as our website provider which allows us to make some minor editing on our own without incurring additional costs. The new website will provide features and functions to better promote our organization: improve marketing for volunteers (Tutors, Classroom Instructors, Digital Learning Coaches, and non-instructional volunteers in areas such as: office, technology, grant writing, fundraising, event planning, etc.), improve awareness in South Sarasota County communities, and increase donations (allow for monthly on-going donations in addition to our one-time donation option). The new website will also promote and allow for registration for all of our services: one-on-tutoring, classroom instruction, and online digital learning. Marketing banners and brochures will be used at community outreach events in the North Port area.
2023 North Port Forward $5,000 North Port Forward is seeking financial support for podcast equipment and an upgraded website. As a growing non-profit, NP Forward is working on producing a website to relay the information to as many residents as possible. To accomplish this goal, the website needs to be interactive to support podcasts and responses to viewers questions. This year, NPF is sponsoring the North Port ‘United Tour’, with discussions on various topics such as DeAnnexation, ULDC –zoning changes, the budget, infrastructure, and more. Residents are able to ask specific questions and get answers directly from department managers and/or have follow-up conversations with city staff. Unfortunately, most in person attendance was limited to 100 residents. NPF was able to livestream one event at the Shannon Staub library, and over 400+ residents were able to watch the event Live. NPF needs to purchase equipment to bring events to a larger audience, and to provide livestream and filmed information to the growing population (currently at 86.5k) of North Port residents.
2023 North Port Meals on Wheels $12,000 This amount will be used to pay for costs required to prepare and deliver meals for all clients who qualify for free or reduced meals according to NPMOW rules based on Federal Poverty guidelines. We expect to serve 140-150 clients at a time in 2024. Since clients come and go, we expect to serve about 293 unique clients over the course of the year. Of the estimated 140 clients in January, about 38% will qualify for free meals and another 12% will qualify for reduced $2 meals. 50% of the estimated 140 initial clients is 70 different people who will receive subsidized meals in a given month. This summer, during June and July we expect to prepare and deliver 3201 free and reduced meals at a net cost of $15,673 before payroll and fundraising. Your grant would cover most of that cost.
2023 North Port Senior Center $5,000 The funds requested will be used to purchase equipment for the senior center. WE DESPERATELY NEED 8 – 4’X4’ CARD TABLES WITH 32 FOLDING CHAIRS. A NEW DVD PLAYER (CAPABLE TO PLAY ON THE NEW TV), 10 ARM CHAIRS FOR THE ROUND TABLE, and A SET OF BINGO BALLS.
2023 Safe Place & Rape Crisis Center $5,100 The proposed use of grant monies provided by Heron Creek Community Foundation would be used to cover all annual operational expenses for the SPARCC North Port Office ($2,100) and a small percentage of SPARCC Emergency Shelter Operations ($3,000) Currently, SPARCC’s North Port office is located in the North Port Family Service Center to provide accessibility of services to citizens of North Port who are victims of domestic violence or sexual assault. The additional funding ($3,000.00) would go to support operations at SPARCC Emergency Shelter (undisclosed location). The SPARCC Shelter operates 24-hours a day, 365 days a year and can be accessed through several points of entry: the SPARCC 24-hour hotline, the Florida Domestic Violence Hotline, the SPARCC Outreach Office, and by referral from law enforcement, hospital or court personnel. Eligibility is open to all victims of domestic violence.
2023 Take Stock in Children $5,000 TSIC Sarasota has requested $5,000 ($4,000 for tuition and $1,000 for counseling and mentoring services) to provide a college education for two North Port students. The HCCF grant of $5,000 would be matched by a local donor for the $4,000 scholarship amount, resulting in $8,000 of locally raised scholarship funds. Through a unique public-private partnership program with the State of Florida all locally raised scholarship funds are matched (dollar for dollar) by the Florida Prepaid College Foundation Project STARS (Scholarship Tuition for At-Risk Students), bringing the total amount to $16,000. In summary, the $5,000 HCCF grant will become $16,000 through matching funds, and two low-income at-risk students from North Port will have the opportunity to attend college.
