About the Sun Sentinel Children's Fund
In 1991, the Sun Sentinel expanded its longtime commitment to Florida's Broward and Palm Beach counties and established the Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
The McCormick Foundation matches all donations to the Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund at fifty cents on the dollar. With the Sun Sentinel and the Foundation paying all campaign and administrative expenses, one hundred percent of all donations, plus the match is granted to qualified nonprofit organizations.
All organizations undergo a thorough screening during the grant application process to ensure that only high-quality programs with proven results receive funding.
Since inception, more than $38 million in grants has been distributed through the Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund improving the lives of those in need and transforming the community.
