Community Grants

Parkland Cares Heart

With your help

We’ve funded $75,000 to provide immediate and long-term funding and awareness for mental health counseling for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivors, their families and the community-at-large.

GRANT GUIDELINES

Parkland Cares makes contributions to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that provide resources in line with our mission, values and geography.

No grants are made to individuals, political parties or candidates, religious organizations, organizations that foster or encourage racial, religious or other prejudices, or to any organization that does not qualify as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.

Parkland Cares does not except unsolicited proposals. Mental Health nonprofit organizations in South Florida will be invited to apply.
