“THE DEBARTOLO FAMILY FOUNDATION WAS FOUNDED IN 2001 WITH ONE GOAL IN MIND: To channel the same level of care, compassion and dedication that has allowed the DeBartolo family to find success in real estate, sports, and other ventures, into efforts that help serve the underserved communities of Tampa Bay.” – DeBartolo Family Foundation

“The DeBartolo Family Foundation’s Spirit of Humanity Award honors local nonprofit organizations that impact the Tampa Bay community in a meaningful way. Recipients of this award create unity, demonstrate hard work, and extend their outreach by helping people in need to overcome obstacles that are beyond their control. Since 2002, 60+ recipients have been recognized with the $25,000 Spirit of Humanity Award, awarded three times annually.” – Spirit of Humanity Award – DeBartolo Family Foundation


A Kid’s Place is so grateful to recognized by such an inspiring foundation. This honor will help us continue to change the lives of the children in our care by providing tools, programs, resources, and beyond to continue fostering hope! With this gracious gift, we were able to purchase a 2023 Chevy Equinox and many springtime & summer activities are now sponsored!
