Sun Capital Partners gives back through end-of-year donations

Boca-based private equity firm Sun Capital Partners recently announced donations that benefit the community—just in time for the holidays.

The firm’s Sun Capital Partners Foundation, Inc. donated to three charities dedicated to providing services to women, families, children and disabled communities across South Florida: Boca Helping Hands, Women In Distress and Best Buddies. The Foundation has supported all three organizations in previous years.

“Since we founded Sun Capital Partners Foundation in 2007, we have supported more than 700 charities, focusing on innovative non-profits that have a strong culture of social engagement and provide a direct, positive impact, both globally and in local communities,” said Marc J. Leder, Co-CEO of Sun Capital Partners and president of The Foundation. Leder started the Foundation with Sun Capital Partners co-founder Rodger Krouse, believing that success brings with it a responsibility to make a difference. “We are proud to support Boca Helping Hands, Women In Distress and Best Buddies, and do our part to help ensure they can continue to provide assistance to those most in need.”

Boca Helping Hands, which it has a 10-year association with Sun Capital, received the biggest donation. BHH distributes 80,000 pantry bags each year at four Palm Beach County locations and serves more than 70,000 hot meals annually and provides medical and financial assistance. The Foundation donated $150,000, its largest annual donation to BHH. Its total contributions to the nonprofit add up to $940,000.

The Foundation also donated $100,000 to Women In Distress, whose mission is to stop domestic violence abuse through intervention, education and advocacy. Women In Distress operates a 24-hour crisis line, emergency shelters, counseling, support groups and professional training to educate the community on domestic violence.

Finally, the Foundation donated $50,000 to Best Buddies, the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people globally with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Its programs help those who are disabled form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society.

The donations are an ideal way to mark an era for Sun Capital. This year marks 25 years of investing and partnering with outstanding management teams to accelerate value creation, working with more than 400 companies around the world.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
