As leaders of community agencies, we know you face incredible challenges. It takes focused energy and ongoing engagement to “keep it all going.” From your board, to your staff, to funding, to the creation of new and innovative ways to work, you need passion, purpose and skill. The Southwest Florida Community Foundation is committed to supplying you with resources that can increase your effectiveness as you fulfill your mission. We want to tell you about an exciting project we’ve undertaken to do just that.

The 3D Project will:

  • Increase regional collaboration
  • Increase new and targeted sources of community funding
  • Assist you and your organization in building the capacity you need to be successful.
