We believe in
giving back

Since FCCI’s founding in 1959, we’ve been giving back to the community. As our business has grown, so have our efforts to support the regions we do business in. We care about the communities we serve and consider it an honor to contribute to local and national charitable organizations.

Individually, our teammates donate time and raise money for many causes, such as local food drives and food banks, gifts for children and seniors during the holiday season, on-campus blood drives, and more. FCCI teammates also receive paid time off to participate in community involvement and volunteer at the charitable organization of their choice.

FCCI in the Community

As a company, FCCI supports community organizations, arts and cultural events, educational programs and humanitarian organizations.  FCCI is pleased to sponsor:

United Way: For many years, FCCI has contributed dollars throughout our regions toward United Way’s goal of helping individuals and families achieve their potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.

Habitat for Humanity: Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. FCCI is pleased to have sponsored five homes in Sarasota and volunteered with numerous builds in many locations.

All Faiths Food Bank: Hunger is an ongoing concern in our local communities. In cooperation with partner agencies, All Faiths Food Bank helps gather and distribute food to more than 7,100 people weekly in Sarasota and DeSoto counties.

ISEPP: (The International Society for Ethical Psychology & Psychiatry) is an organization of mental health professionals and former mental health patients. Their mission is to promote science-backed, humane mental health treatments and foster patient advocacy.

The Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota: enables young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens through after-school and summer programs that promote character-building. 

Step Up for Students: Step Up for Students provides scholarships to Florida students in grades K-12 who come from low-income families, giving them the opportunity to consider a private school or an out-of-district public school that may better suit their needs.

Children First: Through Sarasota County’s nationally recognized Head Start and Early Head Start programs, Children First provides early childhood education, nutritious meals, a nurturing environment and family services for vulnerable children.

Suncoast Charities for Children: For more than 25 years, FCCI has supported this local charity that serves children with special needs. More than $14 million in facilities have been constructed. The Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix Festival, one of the charity’s most popular fundraising events, has garnered worldwide attention.

Easter Seals of Southwest Florida: provides services for people with disabilities and their families such as life skills training, occupational therapy, sport events, and more. Their mission is to help people with disabilities live full and productive lives.

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe: Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe is the first and only professional black theater company on Florida’s West Coast, and it has provided a platform for many talented individuals who might not otherwise have had an opportunity to cultivate their interests and talents.

Elisa's Greatest Wishes: Named for Elisa Nelson who died tragically at a young age, this organization raises money for Elisa's favorite activities and groups that help "kids be kids" such as libraries, Girl Scouts, animal charities, youth athletics and children's hospitals.

FCCI Gives Back to the United Way

FCCI's Fall Fest, our Annual United Way Campaign, is always a tremendous success — and a lot of fun! In 2017, the Joe Keene Classic Golf Tournament in conjunction with other FCCI-sponsored events (like our skits and costume contests!) raised a total of $144,561. We are grateful to our teammates, vendors and partners for helping us make these events a success for our communities.

Once again, for the 26th year in a row, we have come together in support of a wonderful cause. It is part of FCCI’s company culture to give, and United Way provides us with an efficient and effective way to help others in need. FCCI’s commitment to United Way is stronger than ever and continues to grow."
Richard Rueger FCCI Senior Vice President, Regional Services

Teammate Community Contributions

In addition to corporate sponsorship of many events and organizations, FCCI encourages teammates to make a difference in their own way. Each year, teammates are given four hours of company-paid time to volunteer at the organization of their choice. Many teammates go above and beyond, spending their own time helping a cause they are passionate about.

FLORIDA HELPS THE NEEDY DURING THE HOLIDAYS

Orlando Risk Control teammates Tom O'Reilly and Steve Westman volunteered at the Salvation Army in Sanford, FL.

Gulf Coast Region teammates collected money to purchase food and household items needed for Sunnybrook Children's Home, an organization the regional office has a long history of supporting.
