need your helpDue to the needs in our North Port Community caused by the COVID-19 virus, we are making an urgent appeal to raise funds for the community.  All of us, our families and our fellow community members are facing the challenges the pandemic has raised.  Many members of the North Port Community have been seriously affected and are struggling to put food on their tables and keep up with shelter costs.  The local charities that provide food and other assistance to the community are struggling to keep up with the demand.  See how you can help by clicking "Read More"

The Heron Creek Community Foundation (HCCF) is an organization whose members are residents of Heron Creek.  Our mission is to financially support qualified charitable organizations which serve the citizens of North Port and improve the quality of life within the local community.

This mission is achieved by awarding grants to organizations that have current 501 (c) (3) tax status.  In the ten years since our inception, HCCF has awarded $361,777 to organizations serving North Port.  The need in our community this year is greater than ever due to the national and global issues we are all facing.

Our funding for the grants comes from a combination of fund raisers and investment gains. The national and global issues this year have had a negative impact on both. Two major fund raisers have been postponed.  The Golf Tournament to October 23, 2020 and the Dupree’s Concert to March 10, 2021.  Due to the postponement of our fund raisers, we do not have any fundraiser income available at this time to apply to this year’s grant cycle.

Many of you have been generous in the past by participating in our fund raisers.  We are asking that in these difficult times would you be willing to make a donation to the Foundation that will be directly applied to the grant funds? 

If you would like to make a donation, please write a check to HCCF and write “2020 Grants” in the memo line.  Your donation can be hand delivered to the Welcome Center (there is a locked drop box to the left of the doors) or mailed to HCCF, 3401 South Sumter Blvd., North Port, Florida 34287.

You can also support our efforts by becoming a member of the Foundation.  You can obtain information about membership and the Foundation by clicking HERE.

Thank you,

Heron Creek Community Foundation Board
