Your participation in the annual All Charities Auction Events is vitally important for the entire community and, because charities have given up individual fund-raisers, your one opportunity to come out in support of the causes you care about. Each year the Foundation’s proceeds from the auction events and ORC Charity Check-Off go to the Community Grants Fund supporting a variety of worthy and effective charities on the Reef and in the surrounding communities which are home to our employee base.

Existing Foundation Funds created to address the variety of causes most important to our community include:

  • Administrative Fund (for Foundation Operating Expenses)
  • All Charities Fund benefitting the All Charities Partners
    • Ocean Reef Art League
    • Ocean Reef Community Foundation Community Grants Fund
    • Ocean Reef Conservation Association
    • Ocean Reef Cultural Center
    • Ocean Reef Medical Center Foundation
    • ORCAT
    • The Academy at Ocean Reef
  • Anglers Club Community Fund
  • “Backpack” Childhood Hunger Relief Fund
  • College of the Florida Keys Upper Keys Center Fund
  • Community Grants Fund
  • Community Relief Fund – This grant was created after Andrew to help respond to needs quickly after a hurricane. It’s available to charities in Homestead/Florida City and the Upper Keys, areas where Ocean Reef Club employees and their families live.
