Boca West Children’s Foundation: Our community’s not-for-profit organization

It all began due to the strong desire by the thousands of members of Boca West Country Club to give back to the community they love. That is why, in 2010, The Boca West Children’s Foundation was initiated as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization with its own independent board. The organization’s mission is to identify and fund projects in the Palm Beach County area that aid at-risk children and their families who are in need. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $8 million dollars to fund programs for 25 local charitable organizations. All of these monies have gone toward specific projects and not into general funds. The Boca West Children’s Foundation has fed, clothed and provided dental services for thousands of area children in need, kept abuse shelters open, sent at-risk children to summer camp, and much more. Each year, Boca West Children’s Foundation serves more than 5,000 children, and its volunteers give 45,000 hours of their time.
