What We Fund

Ibis Charities Foundation awards grants to 501(c)(3) charities serving Palm Beach County.

The charities must be in good standing with the IRS, be current with the Florida Secretary of State, and have filed a solicitation statement with the Florida Department of Agriculture Consumer Services. The majority of grants are awarded for projects and programs supported by specific budgets and produce measurable outcomes. However, requests for general funding may be considered in limited circumstances if the request is germane to the charity’s core mission.
