Towne Park - The Foundation
The Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded in 2004 (originally
known as The Check Foundation) to serve and support the communities in which Towne Park associates live and work. The foundation’s charitable focus is to help children in need, specifically with education. The foundation strives to support and contribute to other nonprofit organizations providing educational resources, tutoring, learning-disabilities instruction, special needs, and extraordinary educational programs.
In addition to supporting other non-profit and philanthropic organizations, the foundation has disbursed over $100,000 in financial assistance to various individuals since 2004. The financial assistance primarily helped Towne Park employees
and family members with basic necessities, deposits for temporary housing, prescriptions, insurance deductibles, and so on, after a devastating event such as a home fire or the 2005 hurricane season. The foundation also manages and
administers the Valentine Memorial Scholarship Fund. Annually, The Foundation awards one student a $10,000 college tuition scholarship to be disbursed in equal installments
per college semester. So long as the recipient remains eligible, the foundation will continue to provide financial support during their two- or four-year undergraduate program. During their college tenure, a recipient could receive up to $40,000 in
tuition assistance from the foundation and the Valentine Memorial Scholarship Fund. By 2012, The Foundation envisions four college students supported by the Valentine
Memorial Scholarship Fund. To learn more about the foundation and the scholarship, visit www.thefoundationwebsite.org.
