unique challenges

Breaking the Cycle

At the Poinsette Foundation, we address the unique challenges faced by women and children of color in Orange and Osceola counties within Central Florida. The intersection of race, gender, and age presents specific obstacles that often go unnoticed.

These individuals grapple with systemic issues such as racial discrimination, socio-economic disparities, limited access to quality education and healthcare, and heightened vulnerability to violence and exploitation.

Our organization is committed to driving change, fostering inclusivity, and empowering these communities to break through these barriers, and create a future that values and uplifts every individual.

A Lasting Impact

Community Giving Transformed

Guided by disruptive philanthropy, we address gaps in service, fulfill immediate needs, and lead as a catalyst for change. We don’t make sweeping assumptions about the communities we work with. Our commitment extends beyond crisis moments or Black History Month — we strive to create a lasting impact throughout the year using our three pillars:

We believe in the power of direct and sustainable impact, rather than quick, temporary fixes.
Nonprofit organizations don’t come to us, we go to them. Every month, we initiate opportunities by giving back to a different nonprofit organization or group of people in need.
Investments are made through partnership into other nonprofit organizations serving women and children who need immediate assistance or those offering social experiences, mentoring programs, educational workshops, and career guidance.

Transformative Initiatives

We have made a tangible impact in the lives of thousands of individuals.


We create spaces and opportunities for women of color that may not exist otherwise.


We invest in activities, events, and programs that advance and propel the lives of women and children of color forward.


These activities widen the horizons of children. We’re not just effecting change but driving it, creating a ripple effect of opportunity within the community.

Transformation through Relationships and Partnerships

We go the extra mile to nurture positive relationships with chambers, committees, and other nonprofits who align with our goals. We’re committed to assisting other nonprofits to help them deliver support to the women and children they serve.

Because we’re strongly engaged with the community around us, we adapt to changing circumstances and proactively reach out to new partners to tackle new challenges.
