The Volunteer Florida Foundation is a public-private, non profit organization dedicated to engaging all Florida’s citizens in activities that strengthen families and increase literacy, specifically by managing Governor Jeb Bush’s initiatives. Those include:
- The Governor’s Family Literacy Initiative
- The Governor’s Mentoring Initiative
- The Governor’s Strengthening Families Initiative
- The Governor’s Faith-Based Initiative
We serve as a unifying program development and management group, working with nonprofits, start-up community organizations, nationwide associations, faith-based groups, the private sector and state government to effectively further our program goals. We do so through allocating grants, assuring effectiveness through constant measurement and accountability, and managing partnerships to leverage assets to their maximum effectiveness.
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and a registered charity within the state of Florida. For verification, please phone the Division of Consumer Services at 800-435-7352. The Volunteer Florida Foundation registration number is
SC-08536. The organization is guided by a voluntary board of directors. Liza McFadden is president of the Foundation.
We encourage you to help strengthen Florida through making positive changes in the lives of Florida’s families. Please contact us.
