HISTORY

boca-west-foundation-our-foundation-history-img-1The Boca West Community Charitable Foundation was initiated in 2010 as a not for profit 501 (c) 3 charity organization, whose mission is to identify and fund projects in the Boca Raton and South Palm Beach County to aid at risk children and their families in need.

It came about as a desire by the thousands of members of the Boca West Country Club to give back in some way to the community.

An independent board was established, separate from the Country Club board for accounting and legal reasons.

Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $5 million dollars to fund specific programs of 25 local charitable organizations. All of these monies have gone to projects that benefit the children directly and not into general funds. The Foundation has fed, clothed, provided medical and dental services, kept abuse shelters open, sent at-risk children to summer camp and much more.

Each year, Boca West Foundation serves more than 5,000 children and its volunteers give 45,000 hours of their time each year to the 25 charities with which the organization works.
