Thank You for Putting Your HEART into Brevard
At the Community Foundation for Brevard we are lucky to work with so many big hearts each and every day! We owe all that we do to your kindness, generosity, passion, and love. The month of February is all about heart. And so the Community Foundation thought it was the perfect time to help your heart feel full by sharing some of the reasons we adore our one true love: Brevard County.
Of course there are countless reasons to love the Space Coast – the joy of a sunset walk over 72 miles of breathtaking coastline, the thrill of exploring the Indian River lagoon, feeding the giraffes at one of the best zoos in the country, or feeling the rumble beneath your feet during a live rocket launch!
But there are MANY things to LOVE about Brevard. Here are just a few that we’re sure will make your heart go pitter-patter for the place you live, work and play.
The Great Outdoors
If your Valentine’s plans include spending some time in the great outdoors, you’re in the right place! Outdoor enthusiasts have 20,000 acres of freshwater rivers and lakes bordered by approximately 170,000 acres of wetlands to explore by foot or boat. With 250 square miles of federally protected wildlife refuges and several state conservation areas, get out and see if you can catch a glimpse of our diverse wildlife – including 4,000 species of animals. With an average temperature 73 degrees, put on your dress flops, take your sweetheart by the hand and head outdoors!
Arts & Culture
In Brevard County, there is certainly no shortage of arts and entertainment options for those looking for some culture for a special date night this month. Amazing theatrical venues, orchestras, ballets, art galleries, antique shops and museums are found throughout the Space Coast. There’s also not a lack of festivals happening each weekend – food, drink, music, art – whatever your interest, Brevard has it.
Community & Non-profit Organizations
Lastly, but certainly not least are the amazing charitable and non-profit organizations doing vital work along the Space Coast. As you can imagine – we LOVE THEM ALL! So grab your sweetie and give the gift of your time. Or, attend one of the many wonderful fundraising events happening around town this month. Whether your passion is animals, the environment, children & families, education, human services, or health & wellness, there is sure to be a great organization that you can help to support.
These are just some of the reasons to love Brevard County. There are certainly many more. But at the Community Foundation, we know our region faces many struggles too. That is why we are happy to serve as a trusted resource and leader for philanthropic individuals and organizations to expand, enhance and sustain Brevard County’s quality of life – Forever!
