PHILANTHROPY & COMMUNITY TRUST

CAUSES:

PHILANTHROPY & COMMUNITY TRUST

Inspired giving to provide resources to address challenges and seize opportunities in the Southwest Florida region and to serve as the trusted resource for philanthropy.

The Community Foundation seeks to inspire philanthropy within our region for one simple reason: Because the more resources we can provide that go toward solving education, housing, hunger, homelessness, violence and healthcare issues, the stronger the entire area becomes. Joining forces makes us a thriving community that is more attractive to families and to businesses seeking new locations.

Whether we are studying the communities’ needs, pulling people together to help solve issues or helping to strengthen nonprofit organizations with resources to better effect their mission, we seek to be the regional thought leader to facilitate regional partnerships whether supported by funding or fueled by know-how.

Our role in philanthropy works in two ways. We engage donors who want to make a difference now with their charitable giving, and also with those who wish to make their impact later through their estate plans.  The Community Foundation is our region’s resource for philanthropists planning how they wish to make a difference in the world.  We are stewards of donated funds and we honor the wishes of our donors based on their very specific desires.

The Foundation is built on an inspired history of stewardship and effective granting to best address community needs.
