International Design Society Awards $20,000 Grant to All Star Children's Foundation

The Giving Coast

Graci McGillicuddy, the co-founder and board chair of All Star Children’s Foundation, recently announced that a $20,000 grant issued by the Sarasota chapter of the International Design Society will further empower All Star’s rich tapestry of education, therapeutic and clinical initiatives.

“Thanks to this grant, All Star will be able to offer expert care and treatment to children who have experienced neglect and abuse in the tri-county area,” says McGillicuddy. “The International Design Society shares our deep commitment to this cause and wants to do everything in its power to help us provide stability and treatment for these children. They recognize that adverse childhood experiences and trauma comprise the greatest, unaddressed threats to public health facing our nation today. This is an extraordinary gift. It will make a world of difference to All Star’s future success.”

Jesse White, president of the Sarasota chapter of the International Design Society, says that his organization has a long history of supporting local nonprofits—especially those helping children. “Nothing tugs at your heartstrings more than the incredible challenges All Star’s children face,” he says. “All Star’s founders, Graci and Dennis McGillicuddy, are powerhouses who deliver on their promises. Their passion and the leadership have made All Star’s vision a reality. The future of our society rests with our children—and that’s why we want to help.”
