About the Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund
The Sun Sentinel is proud of their long-standing tradition of helping those in need across South Florida. Deepening the commitment, the Sentinel partnered with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation in 1990 and established the Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund.
Through the Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund, grants are made to local nonprofit organizations making a difference for low-income children, adults and families. These qualified nonprofits provide life-changing programs that offer year-round education and mentoring; give access to healthy meals and food supplies; provide stable housing and a supportive place to turn when coping with the effects of abuse.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and readers, and the 50% match from the McCormick Foundation, those less fortunate in our communities have a chance to improve their lives. With all expenses paid, 100% of donations, plus the match, is granted across South Florida. Since inception, over 2,500 grants totaling nearly $41.5 million have been distributed through the Sun Sentinel Children's Fund.
The Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund believes in creating communities that thrive. Together, we are building a stronger South Florida for tomorrow by investing in our children, adults and families today.
