Why give with Community Foundation Tampa Bay?

Great Things
Happen Here

Since 1964, the Sun City Emergency Squad has been providing critical, life-saving emergency service to vulnerable residents—all free of charge. Made up entirely of well-trained volunteers, the Squad provides more than basic life support. They offer a hand to hold when a patient is scared and a shoulder to lean on when a spouse is worried. With many chronically ill seniors on limited incomes, the Emergency Squad is often the most trusted source of assistance in the community. And not a single volunteer receives a paycheck. Their ability to save lives and offer support depends entirely on generous donations from individuals and groups like Community Foundation Tampa Bay.
Connect to Community Needs

Critical Needs

While nonprofits provide services to those most in need within our community, many are often under-resourced and a single, unexpected event can dramatically impact their ability to provide crucial services. To address these unexpected needs, Community Foundation Tampa Bay has created the Critical Needs List for nonprofits to share those urgent, unexpected needs with community philanthropists. A critical need is defined as unbudgeted, unforeseen, and time-sensitive, and one that significantly interferes with a nonprofit’s ability to provide crucial services or presents an imminent threat to the organization’s continued operations. Please view our list submitted by local nonprofits below.
