The ultimate win-win situation.
For 70 years, Florida Citrus Sports and the Florida Citrus Sports Foundation have been committed to helping the economically disadvantaged in our community. With the opening of the reconstructed Camping World Stadium and the new revenue opportunities it will provide, the Florida Citrus Sports Foundation will focus on the residents living in the shadow of the facility so that everyone can benefit from Orlando’s newest crown jewel.
What if a stadium could really revitalize a neighborhood?
Inspired by the history and pride of the people who live in the shadow of the Camping World Stadium, Florida Citrus Sports has teamed with local business leaders to create LIFT Orlando, a research-driven organization whose goal is to ensure a lasting legacy for the residents and the region.
Implementing proven practices and investment strategies, LIFT Orlando seeks to build upon the strengths the people who call this area home and who have helped it become a proud and integral part of the city’s history. With your help, we will ensure our neighborhood continues to thrive and the investment in our stadium truly lifts all who visit and all who live alongside it.
