Extraordinary Charities supports the mission of the Club 100 Charities.
Who Are They:
This organization is most unique and effective for both non profits like us but also for small and medium foundations and groups that would like to donate to improving lives in the County. The Extraordinary Charities Inc.,(EC) was founded by a local couple, Beverlee and John Raymond Jr. They wanted a means to organize and recognize the many unique and effective small and large charities and to share our goals and needs to possible donors. What They Do: While the Raymond’s in the back ground are always looking for resources charities need what we know them for is what they do for the many faces of poverty, sickness, homelessness, and others needing help in Palm Beach County.
What They Do:
While the Raymond’s in the back ground are always looking for resources charities need what we know them for is what they do for the many faces of poverty, sickness, homelessness, and others needing help in Palm Beach County. The following is what they do that I know of:
- Publish a 40 page document that via narrative and photographs explains and demonstrates what forty (40) charities are achieving. Its both beautiful but organized in a way that it helps us see who our potential partners are. They have published 6 annual books to date.
- They hold an annual luncheon for all the 40 charities and the club attended again this past week. This event is very effective in that it gives the club excellent opportunity to meet new charity leaders and discuss partnerships.
- The club is always in need of resources to continue or expand our mission and activities. For the past 4 years the Charity has gifted several thousands of dollars to help us grow and improve. The Charity also helps Club 100 in other ways. During our fire recovery they helped with sufficient funds for our refrigeration and freezer needs. Companies come to them with donated items for office or program operation. They use the Charity as a gift distribution partner. Last, they have introduced the Club 100 to many leaders in Palm Beach County. They have been the biggest promoters of the Club 100 over the past 4 years once we were selected as an EXTRAORDINARY CHARITY
