Providing an Anonymous Assist to Brevard County Citizens in Dire Need
Founded in 2014 by a thoughtful woman to provide a one-time anonymous one-time "hand-up" to Brevard County citizens with an urgent financial need, the Gift Angel Society is supported by member and patron donations.
Registered under the auspices of Cocoa Community First, Inc. as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our members reach into the community to identify dire needs.
When a member learns of an urgent need—through relationships with first responders, police organizations, social workers, hospitals or friends—they send an alert with a request for assistance to the group.
A gift request is presented by an Angel to a Board Member for review to ensure it meets gift criteria. It is then reviewed by the full Board and finally shared and voted on by the membership. We accomplish this quickly. Funds are paid to an official entity and the individual is anonymously given a card saying,"Today you received a gift, and when you can, keep the good deed going without anyone knowing." Gifts are funded by majority vote.
Gift Angel Society gifts are made directly to service providers instead of citizens. Depending on individual needs, we have paid for emergency housing rentals, mortgage payments, utility bills, school supplies and lunches, clothing, dental care, a bicycle for getting to work, or emergency hotel costs,
We also have provided Thanksgiving dinners, Christmas gifts for children, funeral expenses, and a set of auto tires among other gifts.
As of August 2018, Gift Angel Society has given 65 gifts totaling $27,328.83, which assisted 272 people.
With support from sponsors and community members who attend our fundraising events, we will be able to continue our gifting mission and provide urgently needed assistance to families and individual residents of Brevard County.
Gift Angel Society is 100% operated by volunteers.
The Gift Angel Society mission is to anonymously assist Brevard County citizens in dire need by providing
a one-time hand-up to help them get back on their feet.
Gift Angel Society is already gathering food commitments and monetary donations for Thanksgiving baskets.
The Gift Angel Society includes more than 50 members.
