Each year since 2006 the Community Foundation of East Central Florida has the pleasure of making grants for indigent care in Volusia County from the Simon J. Peabody Fund.
Mr. Peabody could never had envisioned that his thoughtful gift could be helping people today.
The Simon J. Peabody Fund is a perfect example of how setting up a donor fund with the community foundation can assure that the cause you care about will continue to be funded even after your death. Mr. Peabody died in the 1934 and his endowed fund is still giving to indigent care today, over 80 years after his death.
Each year the foundation ask a group of local residents and community leaders to serve on our grant committee to review and recommend grants from applications to our board of directors, who makes the final decision.
