I am once again honored to serve as Executive Sponsor for the annual Tampa Bay Charity Register published by Tampa Magazines.
As Tampa Bay continues to grow, so do the needs of many people and families in our community. Luckily, Tampa Bay is home to charities of all kinds, tirelessly working to make Tampa a better place to live for all. In 2022, charities continue to navigate post-pandemic realities like rising costs, limited funding and global supply chain shortages. Thus, the active willingness of socially responsible people to attend fundraising events and contribute time, resources and donations are all the more crucial.
Here in Tampa Bay, we are fortunate to live and work within a population of so many intelligent, principled and socio-economically sophisticated men and women who continue to make this great community the location of their respective residences and professional careers. And if the greatness of any community is truly measured by its willingness to identify and assist those in need (whether people, animals, environmental entities, etc.), then let each of us commit to making ours even greater by contributing to our many great local nonprofit organizations.
Each listing within this register provides information about the nonprofit organization and how you can contribute, make donations or support upcoming events.
For the second year, Stay-in-Step is my charity of choice. It’s a nonprofit entity that has been of personal importance to me since its inception and I am excited to celebrate its continued success in serving the residents of Tampa Bay. I encourage you to read more about this local organization and all of the other wonderful charities referenced in this issue. Together, we are building a stronger Tampa Bay. It is my pleasure to present the 2022-23 Tampa Magazines Charity Register beginning on the following page.
