The Volunteer Florida Foundation raises funds to support Volunteer Florida, the state’s lead agency for volunteerism and national service.


Throughout the year, the Foundation assists the administration of high-impact national service programs, promotion of volunteerism throughout the state, and is also responsible for the Governor’s special initiatives, to include Black History Month and Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations, as well as awards to honor Florida’s most outstanding volunteers, educators, veterans and health care professionals.


The Foundation manages the Florida Disaster Fund, Florida’s private fund established to help communities with disaster response and recovery.
