Why we do what we do….

Community support, through volunteering and donations, is critical to the success of Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs). NPOs depend on members of the community (individuals, foundations and corporations) for the support needed to carry out their mission.  The number of people being served by NPOs has increased due to the poor economy, while their funding has decreased. 
For example, the Coalition for the Homeless relies on community support for over 70% of their resources. However, they’ve noticed a drastic drop in food donations from individuals and in the food supplies available from local food banks. They rely exclusively on the generosity of the community to meet almost all of their resident supply needs. There are 3,970 homeless persons living in Central Florida on any given night in 2009; a 17% increase over 2008 results. The number of homeless families with children has increased dramatically since 2008.  As of May, 2009, 4,206 homeless children had attended schools in the region, as compared with 2,700 during the 2007-08 school year.
According to the Heart of Florida United Way, more than 62,600 local jobs disappeared between March 08 & March 09.  Many of these families are also losing their homes to foreclosure.
Space to Grow Charities fills the needs of Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs) through Giving Events© focused on fundraising, collect drives and volunteerism. 
In addition, we organize Point of Entry events to both promote the NPOs programs and cultivate relationships with loyal supporters and new donors. We share personal reflections that inspire donors to participate.
Our Giving Events© provide inspirational and uplifting experiences that support the emotional development of the NPO clients to help them overcome their circumstances. Many of our events are designed to assist children by providing experiences that may be out of their reach due to their family situations. We aspire to bring compassionate fun into their lives while reinforcing the fundamentals of teamwork and personal responsibility.
