      BallenIsles Charities Foundation Provides Funding To The

      Palm Beach Gardens Police And Fire Rescue Foundation

        BallenIsles Charities Foundation has again set a fundraising record. During their 10-year
      anniversary, the foundation awarded grants of $800,000 to 46 local organizations and over $4.6
      million since inception. Who could have predicted that? This year’s total includes the funding
      of a special impact grant to the PBG Police and Fire Rescue Foundation’s emergency financial
      assistance fund of $30,000 which helps our first responders and their families.
        The Palm Beach Gardens Police and Fire Rescue Foundation has received funding from the
      BallenIsles Charities Foundation to establish an emergency financial assistance fund for police
      and fire rescue personnel. The $30,000 donation was provided to support Palm Beach Gardens
      first responders in times of extraordinary financial need.
        “This multiyear commitment by the BallenIsles Charities Foundation has allowed us to broaden
      our mission. It allows our Police and Fire Rescue Foundation to reach the next level of support for
      our first responders,” said Irwin F. Edenzon, president of the Police and Fire Rescue Foundation.
