The Key Biscayne Community Foundation is holding its annual Aqua Party on March 12, 2016. This year’s benefit will take place at Fairways on the Key and will begin at 7 p.m. The Aqua Party is one of the Foundation’s biggest fundraising opportunities and is a highly anticipated event.
Support Us at This Year’s Aqua Party
The Aqua Party is an excellent opportunity to support the Foundation’s charitable efforts while enjoying a glamorous night out in a gorgeous setting. Many of our past and current donors attend and rub elbows with board members, community leaders, and professionals in a wide range of fields.
Past events have featured chef-prepared food, and a night of dancing and mingling under the stars. This is the party that everyone will be talking about in the months to come, and tickets are now available at the individual and table levels.
What Does the Foundation Do?
The Foundation is organized around the principle of empowering charitable-minded citizens to effect change in their community, their region, their nation and their world. Donors create a fund within the Foundation, and the gifts that are placed in that fund are then invested.
Donors are able to select the balance of stocks and bonds that best suits their investment goals and risk tolerance. From that point forward, the fund is professionally managed, giving donors the assurance that their investment will have the maximum level of charitable impact.
Grants that are made from a donor’s fund will bear the donor’s name. In addition, community members can also simply make a one-time donation to any of the Foundation’s programs that they choose to support.
Who Benefits From Foundation Grants and Programs?
The Key Biscayne Community Foundation touches people from all walks of life in innumerable ways. Grants have helped to support art programs for children undergoing cancer treatment, provided disaster relief after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, and empowered elderly people to embrace healthy lifestyle choices.
Community partnerships have led to charitable programs in organizations that range from the Miami City Ballet to the Biscayne Bay Waterkeepers, Doctors Without Borders and to local elementary schools. Our team is always on the lookout for new opportunities to make a positive impact in the world, at both the local and global level.
Many Key Biscayne residents want to pursue philanthropic efforts but are unsure where to begin. The Aqua Party is a great opportunity to come out, meet new people, and learn more about the Key Biscayne Community Foundation and how to put one’s charitable intentions into action.
The Foundation is supporting meaningful change in our community and our world, and there is no better time to get involved than right now.
