Each year, The Queen's Court selects two deserving charities to be the recipients of the all funds raised by the annual Queen of Hearts Ball. Since The Queen's Court is operated solely by volunteers, 100% of all net proceeds raised by the Ball are distributed directly to the two selected charities. Well over $2,650,000 has been raised by The Queen's Court, in support of a variety of charitable, cultural, and educational organizations.
The Queen’s Court accepts applications from January through March from area non-profits for the following year's Ball. Applicants must have a 501(c)3 status and regularly file a 990 with the Internal Revenue Service. The organization’s headquarters must be located in Pinellas County and all business should be conducted within Pinellas.
Two non-profit organizations will be chosen each April and will share the proceeds of the Ball to be held the following February.
Grant recipients have already been selected for the 2023 Ball.
