For Donors & Community Members

Devereux Florida serves over 13,000 children and families each year through 38 programs meeting the behavioral health, intellectual/developmental disabilities and child welfare needs in our community.

Unfortunately, the need for services for individuals with mental health issues and intellectual/developmental disabilities continues to grow at a dramatic rate. Many of the families we serve rely on community support to provide for their needs and the needs of their children. Devereux is devoted to helping children and families reach their goals but we can't do it alone. With your help we can make a difference in their lives today and for many years to come.

Support Our Children's Needs

Throughout the year Devereux Florida hosts several drives to support our children.  At Devereux, we know how normal life experiences impact a child’s development and pledge to provide those opportunities to our children with the support of our community. 

Backpack Drive: Sending a child to school prepared to learn allows them to fit in with their peers and have the tools to learn.  Click here to learn more or to make a donation.

Holiday Gift Drive: Many children throughout Devereux’s care have never experienced the joy of the holidays and their traditions.  Make this holiday season a special one for a child in care.  Click here to learn more or to make an online donation.  

Children’s Benefit Fund: Every child deserves the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities, summer camps and specialty programs.  To learn more about making this dream a reality or to make a donation, click here.   

  Host a Fundraising Event

Host a Fundraising Event

There are a number of ways that you can get involved in support the children and families served by Devereux Florida.  Below are just a few examples and ideas to get you started.

Hold A Drive: This is a great way to get your business or fellow employees involved in the community. Set up a box in a main area of your office.  Ask your employees to contribute gifts, school supplies, etc. to the box.  At the end of the drive, collect all of the donations and give them to the children supported by Devereux Florida.  (Helpful Hint): Making the drive a friendly competition between departments or employees is a great way to boost employee morale!

Purchase Item(s): Our children will be very excited to open their holiday gifts or go back to school with brand new clothing and supplies.  Be a part of the magic by purchasing these items for one or many of our children.  Call our development team at 407-362-9210 for a complete list of needs.

Hold a Fundraiser: Want to help in an even bigger way?  Holding a fundraiser for Devereux Florida is a great way to collect donations that can directly benefit our children in care.  Some ideas for fundraisers include: dress down days at the office, car washes, partial proceeds nights, etc.

Host a Party: Having a party with all of your friends this year?  Why not make this party one that will benefit children in need?  Ask each guest to bring a toy, school supply or donation to the party.  Then you can donate these items to the children at Devereux Florida.  This is not only a fun way to get together with your friends, but also a great way to get them involved in helping their community.

Make a Monetary Donation: Don’t have time to hold an event or collect items for our kids?  Not sure what to purchase?  Monetary donations are always a great option.  Click here to make an online donation.
