Highlighted Partner: Indian River Community Foundation

UP welcomed the staff of Indian River Community Foundation (IRCF) on March 5th. An update on UP’s projects and programs was provided as well as a tour of the New UP Center. IRCF has been very supportive of UP’s work in Indian River County, including grants for our Success Training Employment Program (STEP) and a capital grant to support the Health Clinic in the New UP Center.

IRCF is a vibrant, nonprofit enterprise with a powerfully simple mission of building a better community through donor-driven philanthropy. IRCF was established in 2008 and is accredited as meeting National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations. The Community Foundation is a member of the Community Foundations of Florida, a member affiliate of the Florida Philanthropic Network.
