double donationWe have received exciting news since our request for donations went out on July 1. One of the “Founders” of the Heron Creek Community Foundation (HCCF), Sandy Edinger and his wife Martha have generously offered to match up to $10,000 to this fund-raising effort! 

The HCCF Board is very grateful to the Edinger’s for this very generous offer and their continued support of the HCCF.  The matching funds will apply to any donations made after the date of this announcement, July 5, 2020 and prior to October 1, 2020.

The HCCF is planning on awarding our grants as we usually do in November. However, the number of grants and the amount distributed will be based on the amount of funds raised between now and November.  Presently, the Board has decided to limit and focus our efforts this year to the three following needs in the North Port Community: Feeding the Hungry, Scholarships and Short-term rental/mortgage assistance. 

Thank you to those residents who have already donated to this fund-raising drive.  Those of you who have not yet donated please consider doing so in order for us to maximize the matching funds offer.

If you would like to donate, 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 visiting our website at:
