April 2024: Florida Keys Outreach Coalition Receives $30K to Aid Homelessness Prevention Efforts from Ocean Reef Community Foundation

Thanks to the Ocean Reef community’s generosity, the Ocean Reef Community Foundation annual grants program will provide more than $2 million to charities outside the gate for the second year, surpassing last year’s total. The Community Grants program funds scores of worthy charities in the interest areas of Education, Youth, Health & Family Services, and Community in the Upper Keys, Homestead, and Florida City each spring. Including 2024 grants, the program will have awarded more than $18.3 million since the Foundation’s All Charities effort to consolidate fundraising in the Ocean Reef community began in 2008.
