The Outreach Program at Indian River Club is supported by both the Golf Community and Residential Communities of the Indian River Club.
Head, Heart and Hands of Indian River Club, Inc. (HHH) was established in 2013 and is run by its own Board of Directors, which manages 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 purpose of HHH is to support the Indian River County community to improve the quality of life in the areas of health, education, youth activities, homelessness, environmental challenges, cultural programs and scientific research.
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 assembly is held at 4:00 PM in the Indian River Clubhouse, where, afterwards, Members may enjoy a dinner at the Club..
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 a Grant Committee comprised of donors, and grants are awarded and delivered in a public ceremony in March at IRC. Since 2015, HHH has awarded more than $1.2 million in grants to non-profit organizations.
The HANDS Program
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 proven to be a tremendous benefit not only to the school and the children, but also to the Indian River Club volunteers who contribute by gardening, tutoring, mentoring, welcoming the children as they arrive each morning and 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. During the Christmas Holidays, gifts are collected and distributed to Santa for Seniors and Toys for Tots. Each year in the Spring, food staples are collected and donated to a local food pantry. We participate in the United Way Day of Caring and support other local charitable activities through the year.
HHH provides a myriad of ways to contribute time and talent to our community. Please, "get involved" in whatever way YOU choose!
