2016 Grant List

$1,000,000 to Central Florida Organizations!

In 2016, $1,000,000 was granted by the Orlando Sentinel Family Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund, to local nonprofit organizations that help move children and families to self-sufficiency. Because of these organizations, families have access to nutritious meals and supportive housing, child abuse prevention and treatment programs and well-rounded educational and tutoring programs.

We are proud of the more than $36 million that has been granted through the Orlando Sentinel Family Fund.
