Walt Disney World announces new $1.5 Million donation to 15+ Florida Nonprofits

Walt Disney World is giving new donations totaling $1.5 million to 19 nonprofit organizations creating positive change in Florida.

“Florida has been our home for more than half a century and each organization receiving a grant is doing amazing work for our community,” said Rena Langley, Senior Vice President of Communications & Public Affairs at Walt Disney World Resort. “This will help them continue making big differences and is another step forward in our long history of giving back to those around us.”

Each nonprofit receiving a Disney Grant is supporting important work in the state for Floridians and their families – from establishing strong education and workforce development programs, to supporting the arts, combatting homelessness and hunger and more.

Organization who have benefited include Hope Partnership, Central Florida Community Arts, Book Tower Gardens, Children's Home Society of Florida, Foundation for Foster Children, Zebra Coalition, and more.

Disney World cast members spend time personally volunteering with many of the granted organizations and others across the state through the Disney VoluntEARS program.

This year, cast have spent more than 115,000 hours giving back through the popular program.

This latest donation joins recent company efforts like hosting Disney World’s largest wish-granting event ever, donating $125,000 to support local school districts, creating a new affordable housing development, expanding our commitment to conservation with $500,000 in environmental grants and more.

Disney will continue to seek out meaningful ways to make significant impacts as it looks to the future.
