Vision: To create more unified, vibrant communities.
The Spirit of Giving Network is a collaborative, nonprofit organization with a focus on children and families in South Palm Beach County. It is a forum where nonprofits and community supporters share information, resources and best practices. Currently, there are more than 60 nonprofit member organizations meeting on a monthly basis. The group’s objective is to streamline the delivery of services to the community by working collaboratively to solve issues and improve operations through internal and external partnerships. To achieve our objective these four Guiding Principles are used:
 
Purposeful Communication - Deliberately and intentionally creating opportunities to share information & resources.

Relevance - Meetings and group activities must be meaningful and beneficial to members.

Commitment - All members must commit to and fulfill their obligations to the Network in order for it to succeed.

Collaboration/Partnerships - Create formal partnership agreements with local agencies, community partners and individual supporters to maximize the distribution of resources across the community.
 
 
Projects
 
Level 2 Live Scan Fingerprinting
 
Appointments required. Fingerprinting open Tuesday & Thursday, 9am-4pm.
 
Currently, the Spirit of Giving Network has two signature projects during the year, the Holiday Gift Drive and the Community Back to School Bash:

Holiday Gift Drive
 
In 2009, we began a partnership with the Junior League of Boca Raton to provide over 4,000 children who are served by the Network of nonprofit organizations, with a special holiday gift wish. This relationship allows us to reach more children to making their holiday season brighter.
 


Community Back to School Bash
 
Provides at-risk children, served by the organizations that make up the Spirit of Giving Network, the opportunity to begin school with new backpacks and supplies so that they have the tools they need to learn. At the event, each child is paired with a personal shopper who guides them through a “store” of new school supplies. The child is encouraged to "shop" for their own supplies based on their preferences. While the children shop, the parents explore a variety of informational booths. Healthy snacks, medical testing, new shoes and free haircuts are also provided.
 
Community Volunteer Training
 
The goal is to encourage civic engagement by providing a single site for volunteer training, background checks, standardized applications and listing of local volunteer opportunities. Public volunteer training is held the every Tuesday 4-5 pm at the Junior League of Boca Raton office. Volunteer Hotline: 561-299-1205.
 
Non-Profit Wish List
 
This comprehensive list is published so that community supporters can have a quick reference of the specific needs of our non-profit organizations.
