Networking To Help Children (NHC) was founded in 2009 by Board President, David Chirico. His passion for helping children in need and gift of connecting people through networking inspired acts of generosity and giving to flourish at the Monthly Networking Events he organized in his local Palm Beach County community. In 2016, NHC was granted Nonprofit 501 c (3) status. To date, the organization has raised and donated almost $1 Million dollars to local Nonprofit Charities that serve children in Palm Beach County, Florida. The Vision of NHC? To increase the impact donors have on children's lives in the local community as we begin to extend the NHC brand of generosity and giving throughout the State, the Nation and someday, around the globe.
NHC currently awards funds to Nonprofits in the Palm Beach County area who provide needed services to children. Our Board of Directors and Executive Leader review Grant applications for each of our two grant cycles. Ten Nonprofits are awarded $1000 each during each cycle. At the end of 2024, NHC will begin to award the annual 'Amplify the Impact' Grant...a $5000 Grant to the Nonprofit who reports the most detailed data reflecting the deepest impact to children in the county.
As a newly awarded 'Giving Tuesday Community Leader for Southeastern Florida,' in 2024, we plan to raise additional funds to amplify our impact as we begin to connect with other Nonprofits serving children in the region. In 2025 and beyond, NHC hopes to make an impact with Statewide, National and International outreach. www.givingtuesday.org
From March through November NHC doubles its impact by hosting two Networking Events per month. Ticket sales and Sponsor donations are awarded to two Board reviewed Nonprofit Charities of the Month. Local restaurants provide venues that appeal to our new Young Professionals Group and will continue to offer our Executive and Retired Professionals Group a warm and welcome atmosphere to gather, connect and support children in need in Palm Beach County.
Through generous donations from Corporate Leader Giving, Individuals, Business Sponsors and Grants from Foundations, after thorough Board review, we are able to offer two grant cycle awards per year, an End of Year Grant Impact Award and hire experienced Nonprofit professionals to help implement our Mission, as they oversee and lead daily operations. We love our team's dedication and spirit of community to help support and build a resilient future for the children who need us most.
