 The Jim Moran Foundation

Founded in 2000 by automotive pioneer Jim Moran to ensure his philanthropy would endure beyond his lifetime, the mission of The Jim Moran Foundation is to improve the quality of life for the youth and families of Florida through the support of innovative programs and opportunities that meet the ever-changing needs of the community. The foundation has invested nearly $60 million in education, elder care, family strengthening and youth transitional living initiatives - with efforts currently focused in Broward, Palm Beach and Duval counties.


Florida Philanthropic Network is a statewide association of grantmakers working to strengthen philanthropy through research, education and public policy.
