The Florida National Guard Foundation and the Friends of Jacksonville Animals are 501(c)3 nonprofits registered with the State of Florida.
The Florida National Guard Foundation was created in 1983 to help preserve the heritage of the Florida National Guard but in 2001, the mission changed to help provide economic assistance to the members of the Florida National Guard, their families and our veterans. Since 2001 the foundation has provided over $5 million in assistance to our members, their families, veterans and families of the fallen.
Friends of Jacksonville Animals works directly with Jacksonvilleʼs Animal Care and Protective Services to benefit the lives of shelter animals by focusing on fundraising to assist with medical care, enrich the shelter environment, and promote adoptions to reduce euthanasia. We serve as an advocate for animal welfare.
