Grace Medical Home

Grace Medical Home provides quality, comprehensive, ongoing healthcare for the uninsured working poor. Because of its rapid growth over the past 10 years – enrolling and treating 3,900 patients with more than 11,000 encounters each year – the Grace team located and is renovating a new, much larger facility in downtown Orlando to accommodate its now 22 specialty clinics.

 

With the $250,000 grant from the Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation, Grace will establish a Dental Clinic because good oral care is critical for good overall health.

 

The new Grace “home” at 1417 East Concord Street in Orlando is due to open before the Fall of 2019.

Delivering Good

Delivering Good unites retailers, manufacturers, funders and individuals to provide people impacted by poverty and tragedy with new merchandise, effectively distributed through a network of agency partners to offer hope, dignity and self-esteem to at-risk children, families and individuals.

 

The Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation’s $75,000 grant to Delivering Good in 2017 was leveraged to bring more than $10.6 million worth of brand name products into Central Florida homes, more than $6 million in response to Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

 

When Hurricane Michael struck the Panhandle in 2018, EBCF introduced Delivering Good to our network of friends in the private and independent sectors in Northwest Florida. Funding and warehousing were established for distribution of goods during the many months of recovery.

The Winter Park Public Library

The Winter Park Public Library is writing a new chapter in the educational and cultural life of the City with the building of a 21st century, state-of-the-art library facility. This oldest public library in Central Florida was selected by the Aspen Institute as one of five libraries across the country to engage in dialogues advancing new thinking about the role of public libraries in the future. The Aspen Dialogue fueled the planning phase for the new building and helped attract one of the world’s most influential architects to design it. Sir David Adjaye, who is perhaps best known in the United States for his design of the National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall, has been working with library and city leaders for the past two years in preparation for the new library, which will be part of The Canopy project in Martin Luther King Jr. Park.

 

The Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation committed the first and largest grant to date for the new library. The library board is leveraging this $750,000 matching grant to fulfill its commitment toward building the “Library of the Future” for the residents of Winter Park.
