The Community Foundation is our regions center for philanthropy since 1972. The Foundation has provided nearly $100 million in grants, including more than $6 million in scholarships. Florida toll-free number 888.853.4438
We facilitate philanthropic support to improve quality of life for local residents in need and focus on three priority issue areas including:
1. Community revitalization
2. Educational attainment
3. Positive youth development
We are more than a ''funder''. We partner with local nonprofit organizations that work to address issues affecting our community, and we provide ongoing support, connections and engagement.
The combination of our donors’ generosity and our keen investment strategy have allowed us to infuse more than $11 million in grants and scholarships to the community in the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
Addressing our community’s most pressing issues requires diverse perspectives to be voiced, respect for different points of view and those most affected to have a seat at the table. We work on this through initiatives like On the Table.
We are uniquely positioned to see all the incredible work our nonprofit partners are doing on a daily basis, and we want to develop and foster opportunities for learning and collaboration whenever possible.
As one of the oldest and largest community foundations in the region, it is our responsibility to identify challenges and be a part of the solution.
