West Palm Beach, FL (September 19, 2018) - The Palm Beach County Chapter of the Association of Professional Fundraisers, one of 300 chapters worldwide, has selected Ibis Charities to receive the award of Outstanding Philanthropic Foundation of the year.
Each year, the chapter selects an individual philanthropist, a corporation, a foundation and a fundraising professional to be recognized for outstanding achievement.
Ibis Charities, the official foundation of The Club at Ibis, was chosen because it is has made a significant impact on the community by supporting non-profit organizations in Palm Beach County. The Foundation carefully selects and vets those organizations that provide family and social services, health and wellness programs, educational programs, art and cultural opportunities and environmental concerns.
With an all volunteer group of supporters, the Foundation has donated over $875,000 to local charities the past three years.
Sharon Bross, President of Ibis Charities will accept the award on behalf of the Board of Directors and the members of The Club at Ibis at the awards ceremony next month.
“Ibis Charities Foundation is honored” Bross said “to be recognized for its efforts to give back to those in the community who need a helping hand. We would not be able to do this without the support of The Club at Ibis and the Major Sponsors who give generously to the Foundation and the hundreds of members who attend and participate in our series of fund raisers throughout the season”.
