» Community Involvement
Gold Coast is dedicated to serving the community and charitable causes. Below are some of the charitable organizations we are partnered with.
Veteran Scholarship Program-
Gold Coast Schools is offering a scholarship to recently discharged veterans of the United States military to cover the full cost of tuition and books for our real estate Sales Associate or Life & Health insurance courses. Jim and John Greer, owners of Gold Coast Schools and veterans of the United States Airforce, started this program in September of 2012 by kicking it off at a "Hire a Hero" career fair in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This program is our way of helping returning veterans to get back into the workforce as quickly as possible.

Light the Night Walk-The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s fight against blood cancers-
When it comes to fighting blood cancers, Gold Coast Schools is quick to drop the gloves and come out swinging. Each fall the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) hosts a charity walk known as Light the Night in various cities across the U.S. and Canada. Participants walk to raise money to find cures for blood cancers that are in reach, and can be achieved with the proper research funding. On the night of the walk we gather to educate the community, celebrate battles that have been won, and commemorate those that we have lost along the way. With the generous donations from our staff and students, Gold Coast Schools consistently raises approximately $20,000 annually for blood cancer research through LLS.

Blood Mobile-Florida Blood Centers-
Few would be offended by being called a hero, and the title is not as difficult to earn as one may think. Gold Coast staff and students become heroes throughout the year by donating to the Blood Mobile as it visits our multiple South Florida locations. With the constant need for blood both locally, as well as in distant communities, Gold Coast Schools is proud to contribute to saving lives by hosting the Blood Mobile throughout the year.
Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital- Toy Drive-
Gold Coast Schools embraces the holiday spirit each year by encouraging our staff and students to give back to children in need by donating a new, unwrapped toy, between $8 and $10 in value. Our 2010 contributions went to Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Florida. With an annual goal of collecting over 1,000 toys, Gold Coast Schools is proud to team up with various partners to help make every child’s holiday season even brighter.
