The Colony Project 2023


The Colony Project’s annual fundraising luncheon was held  February 8th at the Bay Club, a welcome achievement after the severe damage to the building caused by Hurricane Ian.  A big thank you to Jill Kushner and the dedicated staff of the Bay Club!

With TCP’s long-time friend and foundational supporter, Virginia (“Ginni”) Ragan, leading the way with a $50,000 match challenge. TCP’s donors more than met that challenge, with a total of $105,000 raised

Thanks to this amazing generosity, TCP, in partnership with The Bridge Fund, provides for the following:

  • 41 homebound seniors and others receive bi-weekly deliveries of fresh produce and dairy products, and a complete Thanksgiving dinner through Café of Life.

  • 268 school children at risk of undernourishment at home find a weekend take-home food pack tucked into their backpacks on Friday afternoon, supplied by Blessings in a Backpack.

  • 30 migrant farm worker families pick up shelf-stable grocery and household items delivered weekly to their encampments by Café of Life.

  • 60 food insecure families who rely on the Café of Life's weekday lunch site take home chicken or ground beef meal supplies for the weekend.

  • Hundreds of families and individuals impacted by Hurricane Ian and personal hardships have weekly access to mobile pantries in three neighborhood locations, sponsored by Community Cooperative and Meals of Hope.

  • More than 100 isolated seniors and other shut-ins receive deliveries of meals, pet food and hygiene items - along with friendly, personal contact - from Meals on Wheels.

  • Over 400 infants and pre-school children are served healthy snacks while they or a parent participate in Café of Life activities.​

Thank you again to all TCP donors for their kindness and support!
