The Outreach Program at Indian River Club is supported by both the golf community and residential communities of the Indian River Club.
The Head, Heart and Hands of Indian River Club (HHH) was established in 2013, and is run by its own Board of Directors who manage not only the overall strategy of the program but also develops and implements specialized activities focused on the needs of the Treasure Coast community with a primary focus on south county.
The HEAD Program
The goal of our HEAD Program is to develop a deeper understanding of the issues, challenges, and opportunities that exist within the larger Indian River County community. To that end, we have created the Speaker Series. These informative sessions are scheduled periodically on Wednesday afternoons throughout the winter season. Each small assembly is held at 4:00 Pm in the Indian River Clubhouse where, afterwards, attendees may partake in one of Chef Michael's fabulous dinners.
The HEART Program
Supporting the community through philanthropy is the purpose of the HEART program. HHH is funded through the generous donations of our Club members, residents, friends, and various fundraising activities. Grant applications from local, non-profit organizations are evaluated and approved through our Grant Committee comprised of donor volunteers.
The HANDS Program
Finally, the HANDS Program provides Indian River Club members and residents an opportunity to help the larger Indian River County community through volunteer activities. Our alliance with the Indian River Academy has proved to be a tremendous benefit not only to the school and the children, but also to the 91 Indian River Club volunteers who do everything from gardening to tutoring, mentoring, welcoming the children as they arrive each morning, and any other special projects that may arise. Gently used luggage is collected each January and donated to the children living at the Hibiscus Children's Village. These children often arrive with their personal belongings in a plastic bag. The luggage provides a sense of dignity when they move to foster care or independent living. Each year in the Spring, HANDS collects food staples to be donated to the local food pantry.
HHH provides a myriad of ways to contribute time and talent to our community. Indian River Club HEAD, HEART, and HANDS Foundation encourages everyone to "get involved" in whatever way YOU choose!
