JFC Launches BeyondMe

Coconut Telegraph

BeyondMe, a new, transformative initiative led by JFCS of the Suncoast to engage young professionals in creative philanthropy was met with open arms and minds at the kick-off party on July 16. Held at Michael’s on East, more than 285 professionals ages 21-45 attended the BeyondMe debut, where they learned about this “platform for good” and collaborative effort with other local non-profits.  This new entry-into-philanthropy program aims to broaden awareness of the numerous charities and opportunities with the goal of fostering volunteerism and inspiring these individuals to become change makers in the community. “Our goal is that by educating and engaging the younger generation about what different charities do, they will become donors and supporters of the organizations that resonated with them through this program,” said Laura McManus-Mesia, chief development officer for JFCS.
