In 1991, the Sun Sentinel expanded its long-time commitment to Florida’s Broward and Palm Beach counties and established the Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund with the McCormick Foundation.
With the support from the public and matching Foundation funds, grants are made through the Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund to local nonprofits that deliver well-rounded education programs for kids. Funding also provides nutritious meals and housing for those in need, as well as child abuse prevention and treatment programs. Together, the Foundation and the Sun Sentinel monitor grants to ensure that only high quality programs with quantitative results which help children and families realize their full potential receive funding.
We are proud of the more than $42 million that has been granted through the Children’s Fund. We promise to continue transforming the community and improving the lives of at-risk kids in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
