SociallyGood is a community event presented by Leadership Broward Foundation and it’s open to everyone! Each month SociallyGood will feature a nonprofit partner who will receive 100% of the proceeds from all SociallyGood guest fees collected from that evening.
Leadership Broward Foundation cares about our community and we are continually seeking ways to be a stronger agent for change. Our mission is to develop and inspire individuals to serve our community. Please join us, as we network with our supporters and friends and introduce them to some of the amazing work that is being performed by local non profits in our community today.
Our Nonprofit Partner this month is:
The Stranahan House was built in 1901 by Frank Stranahan, credited as Fort Lauderdale’s founding father, and his wife Ivy Cromartie Stranahan, the area’s first school teacher. It is the oldest surviving structure in Broward County and has served as a trading post, post office, town hall, and home to the Stranahans.
The mission of the Historic Stranahan House Museum is to tell the story of the birth of our community through the lives of two extraordinary people and the homestead they created and to serve as an enduring legacy for historic preservation.
The purpose is to preserve Stranahan House as a museum, historic site and social center for the community; to interpret Stranahan House through appropriate restorations, exhibitions, educational programs and tours; and to promote Stranahan House so that residents and visitors of all ages are aware of their opportunity to learn about the history of the region, thus furthering the social, cultural and historic viability of the community.
The House is funded through admissions, private donations, grants, and memberships. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Your donation will allow us to continue to preserve, promote, and interpret the history of this House, the family who built it, and the City of the Fort Lauderdale.
