Davidson Cares Continues to Strengthen the First Coast

September 9, 2021


Davidson Cares is dedicated to supporting and uplifting youth throughout Northeast Florida. Since 2012, Davidson Cares has tirelessly worked to strengthen families and children by raising funds for local programs including public schools and non-profit youth organizations. 


With the help of the First Coast community, Davidson Cares has raised more than $260,000 to help support vital programs. This incredible work would not be possible without the Davidson Cares Board of Directors. Together, this team of twelve has gone above and beyond to help pursue the mission of Davidson Cares. The board recently welcomed four new board members and looks forward to continuing to raise money for worthy causes at the Davidson Cares Clay Day on October 21, 2021. In addition to the Board Members we previously introduced, these long-standing board members bring a wealth of knowledge and commitment to Davidson Cares.

You have probably heard about our new Davidson Cares foundation, where we offer support for our outstanding St. Johns County public schools, including Mill Creek Elementary, Wards Creek Elementary, Palencia Elementary and Pacetti Bay Middle School. The program launched this month and we are currently collecting grant submissions from each of the four local schools for their chance to win $500 to $1,000 for a great idea benefiting a classroom, a grade level, or even the entire school. In addition to the grants, Davidson Cares will host local fundraisers to raise even more money to be split amongst the schools. We are extremely excited about our first fundraiser that will take place at Mile Marker Brewery on Friday, November 9th! Read more
