2020 Grant Award Finalists Have Been Selected!

View Videos

We are proud to announce the finalists for Gulf Breeze Will Do’s 2020 grant cycle. Due to COVID-19 precautions, we will not be meeting in person this year. Voting will be done by mail-in ballot. Please review the finalist videos to assist in making your selections for voting.

We also have one change to the ballot. At the very bottom, after you vote for the five winners, one from each category, we’re asking you to vote for the category from which you think we should choose the next grant winner if funds are available. We have $47,196.67 to give out. Without each one of you, this wouldn’t happen. Your community thanks you.

Your ballot must be postmarked by November 23rd. We will announce the winners later this month, or early December.

Thank you again for your investment in our community. This is why we are in this together. This is how we are stronger together. And here are our finalists!
