SapiBon Foundation, Inc. strives to collect more support from other individuals and Local Non-Profit Organizations to continue and widen our programs and campaign to help every child and family to live a better life. The following are some ways you can partner with our Charitable Organization in Fort Lauderdale, Florida:
SapiBon Foundation, Inc. is the leading domestic hunger-relief organization serving South Florida. For every $1 donated to us, we can provide 6 meals. With more than 98 cents of every dollar put back into the community, it costs us just .14 cents to move a pound of food, as well as provide direct service programs and lead advocacy efforts.
In an effort to combat the devastating effects of bullying, our directors have developed meaningful relationships with local school administrators. Our directors proudly assist these schools by subsidizing their existing programs and helping them establish their own anti-bullying programs. If they have already created an anti-bullying program, our organization will subsidize the costs for speakers to present at their assemblies. If the school does not have an existing program, we will work with school administrators to craft an effective program. Our services include gathering essential resources, creating a curriculum, holding focus groups to create our own literature, establishing tips for avoiding bullying, and educating students on what to do in cases of bullying.
Every donation can bring a smile in our community as it helps to enhance the life’s status of others. Make a difference by donating today. We appreciate any amount because every single penny counts. Visit our Make a Donation page to share our cause.
SapiBon Foundation, Inc. relies on the generous support of the community to host food drives, which ensure we receive shelf-stable, high-demand products that are most requested by our partner agencies and their clients.
