Community Impact


Granted to Brandon-area nonprofits and causes since our founding.

Strengthening Our Community

We believe the Brandon area is a great place to live, work, and play. We also believe we have a responsibility to help preserve and sustain what’s good here, and to support local nonprofits which make our community even better.

Thanks to the support of our donors, we're proud to say we've granted more than $275,000 to nonprofits and causes throughout our community since 2006, improving quality of life, creating positive change and driving meaningful social impact through philanthropy. To that end, we're intentional and focused on:

Passion & Purpose

We're here to foster a culture of giving and care in Brandon, to inspire philanthropy, and to improve quality of life and enhance the vibrancy of our community.
