Dear Friends and Partners,
Normally this time of year we have many opportunities to meet in person to share what is happening in our lives and our community. In these days of social distancing I don’t want to miss the chance to stay in touch with you, our friends and steadfast supporters. I am excited to share an overview of the Foundation’s activities over this past year through our online Annual Report 2020.
I would love to hear from you as well, please reach out at [email protected]

Southwest Florida Community Foundation
New Ways – Here’s How
What do you care about?
We have over 500 funds established by individuals, families, and businesses. With a fund at the Foundation, we become your partner in philanthropy.
It’s so easy to use your IRA Charitable Rollover here, why pay taxes if you don’t need the income? Click here so we can customize a fund for you. We also accept gifts of appreciated securities and property so you can convert stocks, homes or lots it into charitable dollars for your causes or favorite organizations.
We offer tax solutions.
Are you interested in “bunching” your philanthropy, taxes and write-offs into every other year so you can itemize? A donor advised fund is perfect for you.
Holiday Gifts on your mind? Why not make a gift in Honor of someone special? We will send them a beautiful card to let them know a gift was made in their name.
There are lots of ways to engage with us.
We are your concierge of philanthropy so consider us your go-to resource on impactful giving in Southwest Florida.
If you prefer not to start a fund, maybe you’ll consider giving to support our work in the community, or if you wish to give to established funds such as the Women’s Legacy Fund, the Environment, the Arts, etc…. we’ve got funds for these and other cause area fields of interest funds too.
Host or attend one of our annual On the Table gatherings held in October, gather people to convene around causes and opportunities in our community at Collaboratory. Click here if you are looking for ways to engage with us.
Let’s Connect Here!
Collaboratory is about connection. Bringing people together to share ideas. To seize opportunities. To develop collective solutions to Southwest Florida’s most pressing issues. In fact, connection is so at the heart of our mission, we built an entire building for the community to do just that.
There are things happening at Collaboratory all the time and we’d love to include you. Come take a tour and learn more about it. We’d love to see you here.
