ORLANDO, Fla. (March 16, 2015) – A quarter of a century ago, the Orlando Sentinel deepened its commitment to Central Florida by partnering with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation to help those less fortunate. This year, the Orlando Sentinel Family Fund marks the 25th anniversary of its establishment. Since then, the Orlando Sentinel Family Fund has touched the lives of thousands of disadvantaged children, families and adults.
ORLANDO, Fla. (July 9, 2014) – The Orlando Sentinel Family Fund, a Fund of the McCormick Foundation, recently distributed $1,000,000 in grants to 33 qualified, non-profit organizations across Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake and West Volusia Counties. Grants are made to help support hunger, homelessness, child & youth education or child abuse prevention & treatment programs.
Since 1990, the Orlando Sentinel Family Fund has granted more than $34 million to qualified non-profit agencies in Central Florida that help local children and families in need. The McCormick Foundation matches all donations at fifty cents on the dollar. In addition, all administrative costs are covered by the Orlando Sentinel and the McCormick Foundation, allowing 100% of all donations, plus the match, to go directly to these invaluable programs and services.
