Purpose

Ignite is a group of professionals who volunteer their time to create a safe and loving community here in Ocala, Marion County. We want to help our local nonprofit organizations by raising funds for their cause and also provide a platform to showcase their specific cause and/or project.

The Ignite Leadership Team will select one nonprofit organization from the applicant pool to receive funding and awareness for their cause. Submitting an application does not guarantee funding. The amount received by the non profit is unknown at this time but we expect to raise up to $50,000. A check will be presented to the nonprofit no later than May 31, 2022.
