Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Supporting our local community and the communities of our clients across the nation.

Every year, CMAC Partners collaborates with numerous outreach and non-profit organizations, inspired to build a stronger and healthier community, both in our community of Central Florida and the communities of our clients across the nation. Our continued partnership with groups such as Support our Scholars, Nathaniel's Hope, New Hope for Kids, and Second Harvest Food Bank allows the CMAC team to personally connect with our communities through charitable organizations. Read below to learn more about the organizations that CMAC supports.


Support Our Scholars

CMAC Partners supports a worthy program called Support Our Scholars (SOS). This non-profit organization provides financial and emotional support to disadvantaged young women who are at the top of their graduating classes in high school. Each scholar is paired with a mentor who remains with her throughout her college journey. Two CMAC team Members participate as mentors. CMAC’s donations are used to sponsor young women from Central Florida throughout their college career. CMAC follows their journies through four years of college, making sure they have the resources to buy books, clothing, and take part in extracurricular activities.


Nathaniel's Hope

Marie and Tim Kuck lost their son in 2001 at the early age of 4 years old. Born prematurely, Nathaniel suffered from multiple birth anomalies, beating the odds time and time again before ultimately losing his battle. Through their personal experience, his parents saw first-hand how demanding it can be to raise a child with special needs and decided to found Nathaniel’s Hope in Orlando, FL. The organization has evolved to offer multiple programs to benefit families with children who have special needs. One such program is “Christmas with Nathaniel’s Hope.” Every year, Nathaniel’s Toy Shop opens, inviting families to shop for free so they can provide their kids with a wonderful Christmas. The CMAC team steps up to donate toys.


Second Harvest Food Bank

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a private, nonprofit organization that collects, stores, and distributes donated food to more than 550 feeding partners in six Central Florida counties. Second Harvest offers programs to help at-risk economically-challenged adults, such as a 16-week culinary training program, in order to set them on a path to self-sustainability and learn life skills. CMAC contributed to and attended one of Second Harvest’s Chef’s Nights, “Wine, Cheese and Chocolate: A Perfectly Paired Dinner,” hosted by three local food and wine experts. The evening benefited the Darden Foundation Community Kitchen’s Culinary Training Program.


New Hope For Kids

New Hope for Kids Wish Program, based in the state of Florida, grants wishes to children though the age of 19 diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. CMAC has been a part of making a child’s wish come true, recently partnering with the Orlando Magic NBA basketball team to grant the wish of Nicholas Hurley, a 15-year old Orlando resident with Type 1 Diabetes. Nicholas is unable to play sports due to his health conditions, but is devoted to the Orlando Magic. CMAC Partners sponsored Nicholas’ wish to attend a game and meet his favorite player, Nikola Vucevic. In addition to courtside game tickets and the private meet-and-greet with Vucevic, CMAC arranged a limousine for Nicholas and his family to cruise to the game in style.


TOCA Foundation

TOCA (The Orthopedic Clinic Association) Foundation’s mission is to improve the community in the areas of math, science, and medical research through support of the Boys and Girls Clubs. The 2nd Annual TOCA Foundation Golf Tournament took place in April of 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix. The Boys and Girls Clubs are able to improve the community’s educational outcomes and future leaders. CMAC participated as a Sponsor of the TOCA Foundation Golf Tournament.


Davis Phinney Foundation

The Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’s mission is to help people with Parkinson’s live well today. It provides essential information, practical tools, and inspiration to people living with Parkinson’s. The Foundation funds early-phase, innovating research that focuses on exercise, speech, movement, and other factors that affect quality of life. Olympic Bronze medalist and Tour de France Stage winner Davis Phinney started the Foundation when he was diagnosed with Young-onset Parkinson’s as a way to inspire and encourage those living with Parkinson’s. CMAC has previously donated to the Foundation and looks forward to continuing to work with them.


Canine Companions for Independence

Each year, CMAC Partners is the lead sponsor in Dog Fest, an event to raise money on behalf of Canine Companions for Independence. Canine Companions’ mission is to provide properly trained service dogs for those with disabilities or those who need assistance with day-to-day activities. Organized by Workout 32789, a local Winter Park fitness center, the event pairs armchair athletes and service dogs for a day of fun and fitness. We are pleased to announce that over $10,000 was raised during this year’s event, a doggone good result. Canine Companions has training centers and chapters throughout the United States.
