The Amazing Give 2020!

We are less than ONE week out from The Amazing Give!

The CILNCF will be participating in The Amazing Give, a 24-hour, online fundraising event, that is hosted by the Community Foundation of North Central Florida. The donations we receive through this fundraiser are an essential part of supporting our organization!

We would like to highlight one of our youth programs, High School High Tech (HSHT), one of the youth programs that will benefit from your donation!

“Although the HSHT program had a difficult time this year because of COVID-19, it still had a very high graduation rate for its seniors! 99% of students graduated this spring, and 90% of them have decided to pursue their dreams through post-secondary education. While there are many excellent success stories about these students, we wanted to highlight Nelson Williams a 2020 Palatka High School graduate from our Putnam County HSHT Program. Nelson has earned a full scholarship from Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, and he will be playing football for them in the fall. We are very proud of him and we will continue to encourage him to shoot for the stars even after he has completed his time in the HSHT Program!”

Your generous donations will go directly into our youth programs, and our Wheelchair Ramp Building Program!

The event lasts 24 hours starting August 19th at 6pm and ending August 20th at 6pm. This year, we are setting a goal of $10,000 and we need your help!
