BBX Capital Donates to Social Justice Initiatives

To continue its effort to enhance arts, education and human services in South Florida, BBX Capital recently provided a $100,000 donation to local nonprofit organizations. The contributions are part of the company’s effort to champion social causes in the area.

The funds are geared toward organizations focused on helping underserved communities tackle systemic racism and advocate racial equality through art and educational programs. Initial funds will be allocated to the the Broward Center for the Performing Arts for its “Arts of Action” program; the “Library of Us” program from HANDY, Inc.; Broward College’s “Broward UP” curriculum; and the “Louder than a Bomb” and “Blu is for Apple” programs from the Jason Taylor Foundation.

“The BBX Capital Foundation wants to be at the forefront of giving to those organizations who are getting to the root of the problem and developing programs to provide our youth with an outlet to express their thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a healthy manner,” says Lois Marino, executive director of the BBX Capital Foundation. “The programs that we are supporting do this through education and the expression of art, spoken word, dance, and music, all of which are at the heart and soul of the BBX Capital Foundation.”

BBX Capital Foundation has committed more than $20 million in donations to nonprofit organizations around Florida since 2013. The company focuses on providing charitable donations to nonprofits that help empower children through art and interactive educational programs.

“We are fortunate that the BBX Capital Foundation can support programs that address systemic racism and social injustices in our society,” says Jarett Levan, president and CEO of BBX Capital and Trustee of the BBX Capital Foundation. “These dollars will go directly to organizations that are having candid conversations about social injustice and educating our communities on the hard work that needs to be done.”
