Welcome to the John's Island Foundation

Providing capital funding to broaden opportunities, build community and transform lives for neighbors-in-need in Indian River County.

John's Island Foundation: How our grant dollars have grown.

The John’s Island Foundation will distribute a record $1,118,278 in capital grants in 2022.

This includes a record-breaking McCabe Leadership Grant of $200,000 to the Coalition of Attainable Homes.This inaugural McCabe Leadership Grant will fund construction of a new free-standing triplex that will provide three permanent units of affordable rental housing for low-income families, veterans and other vulnerable populations in our community.

Going forward, the McCabe Leadership Grant will be awarded periodically by the John’s Island Foundation for special capital projects that will have significant impact on and insure lasting benefits to our neighbors in need in Indian River County.

Over its 23-year history, the John’s Island Foundation has provided more than $14 million in capital grants to non-profit agencies in Indian River County. JI Foundation grants are targeted only for capital needs. Because we fund capital projects and key infrastructure that build and maintain capacity to serve, our grants deliver tangible benefits now and into the future.

Thank you to our donors who recognize how critical capital funding is to our local agencies. Thank you to our John’s Island Foundation Site Team Members who volunteer countless hours to review applications and meet with agencies. Year after year we have asked…and year after year they have given.
