Understanding that volunteers are at the heart of charities, the Dennis M. and Lois A. Doyle Family Foundation launched an initiative to empower those who donate their talents, time and resources to support the mission of Palm Beach County non-profit organizations.
In partnership with the Great Charity Challenge presented by Fidelity Investments® (GCC), the Family Foundation made a generous $10,000 donation that was matched, resulting in the opportunity for ten lucky organizations who are making a difference in our community to receive a $2,000 grant leading into the New Year.
On behalf of the GCC and Doyle Family Foundation, we wish to thank all volunteers who submitted videos, showcasing their support for local non-profit organizations.
“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
