At Walt Disney World, making magic and helping others is what we’re all about. So, it makes perfect sense that we’re giving Disney Donations (in the form of Disney Grants) totaling $1.5 million to 19 Florida nonprofit organizations. These organizations are all creating positive change in the state of Florida – our home for over half a century!

Each one of these Disney Grant recipients is making a meaningful difference in Florida. They’re doing amazing work for our communities. Their contributions include establishing development programs to strengthen Florida’s education and workforce. Other efforts support the arts and work to reduce homelessness and hunger and more.
