Honoring Holly, Inspiring Change

At The Holly Given Fund, our journey began with a profound loss and a collective determination to transform that loss into a beacon of hope. Founded as a tribute to the memory of Holly Given, our non-profit organization stands as a testament to the enduring power of compassion and community support.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple yet impactful: to honor and celebrate Holly Given's life while giving back to the upper Florida Keys community that she cherished. The core of our purpose lies in turning tragedy into positive change, and we are committed to creating opportunities that uplift, empower, and inspire.

Why We're Here

In 2017, we tragically lost Holly Given to domestic violence, a devastating event that deeply impacted her loved ones. In her honor, her friends and family established this fund and annual Fish for Holly Sailfish Tournament to preserve her generous spirit and extend a helping hand to those in need within our community.

Holly Given.
