Mission Statement

“The Zimmer Family Foundation is a small foundation located in Sarasota, Florida for the purpose of supporting religious, educational and social programs…locally, nationally and internationally…that bring help and hope to the less fortunate, primarily by seeding short-term pilot projects that have the potential of self-support.”

The underlying inspiration and motivation is drawn from these Words of Jesus from the Bible:

 Acts 1:8b “You will be my witness in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Matthew 25:40 “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
