We Value Our Community


The Property Appraiser's Office (PAO) encourages employee community service involvement throughout Palm Beach County. Our office is committed to the responsibility of enriching our cities and towns.

The following two local organizations were selected by our employees as the PAO Charity Choices for 2017-2018.

The Children’s Home Society of Florida-Palm Beach (CHS) was established in Jacksonville, in 1902. With a staff of two, they found homes for 21 children in their first year. Each year, they help more than 17,000 kids and family members in Palm Beach County. They are determined to create brighter futures for children. CHS assists families with adoptions, foster care, and counseling programs. Other services they offer include community schools, residential group care, children’s advocacy centers and community outreach. 

The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League of the Palm Beaches provides shelter to lost, homeless and unwanted animals, provides spay and neuter and other medical services for companion animals, and cares for, protects, and finds quality homes for homeless and neglected companion animals, advocates animal welfare, community involvement and education to further the bond between people and animals.

In addition to the work with these charitable organizations, we are especially proud of our annual Scholarship Awards program. In May of each year, we select five college-bound high school seniors from Palm Beach County and award them money for their post-secondary education. Since 1994, the PAO has handed out $125,000 in scholarships. Click here for more info.
