Top 5 Reasons To Become an FVI Sponsor

We need you!  Calling for sponsors and raffle item donations.

The Freedom & Virtue Institute is calling for all businesses and individuals in the SW Florida to become a sponsor for Hooley at the Heights, taking place on Thursday, March 9, 2017, featuring The Screaming Orphans in a limited seating engagement to raise funds for The Freedom and Virtue Institute’s (FVI) programs and missions.  The event will be held at The Heights Foundation, located at 15570 Hagie Drive in Fort Myers. VIP and general admission tickets are on sale now!


You might be asking, if you are a suitable sponsor or perhaps a raffle donation participant. Perhaps answering a few of these questions can help clarify that.

  • Does empowering children mean something to you?
  • Is it important to teach our children through their own actions to become self-reliant?
  • Should we help stop the entitlement or bailing out philosophy that seems to run rampant into today’s society?
  • Could young people make better choices if exposed to the free market and learn about it through experience?
  • Would you like to reach an audience of like-minded individuals?

If your answer is yes to any of the above questions, we ask you to become a sponsor at FVI’s Inaugural Hooley at the Heights today.

About The Freedom and Virtue Institute


The Freedom & Virtue Institute believes in fostering attitudes and leading initiatives that build off the principle of creating self-reliance among underprivileged children and individuals enduring hardship that wish to better their situations and live a dignified, self-sustainable life. Presently, the Freedom & Virtue Institute conducts two unique causes: The Self-Reliance Clubs, Dignity of Work Initiative and the Effective Compassion Training programs.

About The Self-Reliance Clubs

srcThe Self-Reliance Clubs exist to educate the next generation to understand that they are the champions of their own lives. Through their own initiative, ingenuity, and hard work, they will realize that they have the power to determine the direction of their future. Self-Reliance Clubs are set up in schools to provide under-privileged students with the opportunity to work in various entrepreneurship initiatives, learn economics, earn money, and gain self-esteem and a sense of individual freedom.  The ‘money’ earned can then be used to purchase school supplies, equipment, and clothing.

About Dignity of Work Initiative

dignityofwork-logoThe Dignity of Work Initiative of the Freedom & Virtue Institute is a church-based initiative that involves volunteers and employers in assisting people in getting meaningful employment. We utilize the Jobs for Life (JfL) curriculum. Jobs for Life is a global nonprofit organization that engages and equips the local Church to address the impact of joblessness through the dignity of work. By mobilizing a worldwide network of volunteers committed to applying biblically-based training and mentoring relationships, Jobs for Life helps those in need find dignity and purpose through meaningful work.

About Effective Compassion Training

ectThe Freedom & Virtue Institute’s Effective Compassion Training program is designed to offer a detailed exploration of the realities of poverty and to equip participants with practical and meaningful tools to address these struggles. At the Freedom & Virtue Institute, individuals and organizations are shown the impact of their actions on their local communities, with the ultimate goal of bringing change in the internal culture of organizations participating in poverty-alleviation work.
