Daybreak is founded on the principle that our daily decisions profoundly impact the future of our children and their children. Now in its nineteenth year, Daybreak is recognized as a national model for promoting healthy living, supporting a robust economy, and enhancing the quality of life. One key factor contributing to Daybreak’s vibrancy and culture is the establishment of LiveDAYBREAK. This non-profit organization has fostered five key pillars of lifelong learning, promoted the arts and diversity, encouraged healthy living, and encouraged philanthropy over the past 14 years. In addition, LiveDAYBREAK has created a tapestry of connection, weaving together various community elements to promote a sense of belonging and happiness. And of course, LiveDAYBREAK has also been responsible for fostering an atmosphere of fun and entertainment.
LiveDAYBREAK is indeed the heartbeat of the community—providing a variety of opportunities each week for residents to learn, volunteer and connect with one another.
LiveDAYBREAK is driven by a set of core values that guide all events, activities, and programs in Daybreak:
- Connecting: Creating opportunities for personal interactions, volunteerism, and leadership growth that bring people together and strengthen the sense of community.
- Lifelong Learning: Supporting and promoting educational opportunities for individuals of all ages and stages of life.
- Embracing Arts & Diversity: Enriching lives through the arts, celebrating differences within the community, and promoting cultural awareness.
- Healthy Living: Fostering physical and emotional well-being through community events and activities, as well as promoting sustainability in economic, social, and environmental aspects.
- Giving Back: Participating in the betterment of Daybreak and the community at large through volunteerism, service and philanthropic measures.
The founders of Daybreak established a unique funding source to support the activities and events enjoyed by Daybreak residents. This one-time community enhancement fee of ½ of one percent is paid at the time of closing of the transfer of title and serves as a reinvestment back into the neighborhood.
In recent years, these funds have also been utilized to support special projects in area schools and to establish a public art program within Daybreak. For more information about the community enhancement fee, please visit our website.
LiveDAYBREAK offers an exciting calendar of events year-round for Daybreak residents to enjoy, including the popular Summer Concert Series, witness art creation in real-time at the Fizz Fest Art Festival, partake in cultural festivals such as the Lakeside Luau and Bollywood Celebration, and participate in many other events.
