About the Foundation

We are proud to celebrate the meaningful work we do to enhance the quality of life in Coral Gables. Through our charitable funds, we drive philanthropic solutions to promote a thriving, collaborative and generous community.

The Community Foundation has invested over $14 million into the community since 1991. In the past year alone, the Foundation – and our Fundholders – have committed more than $3 million in grants and scholarships. We welcomed Rocks of the Community and hosted our signature annual events – the Tour of Kitchens, Gala and Wine Auction, enabling us to raise funds to carry on the work we do. We continue our stewardship of Donor Advised, Non-Profit, Endowment and Scholarship Funds, and take pride in assisting our donors in reaching their philanthropic goals.

Your participation and donations represent a sound investment in your community. We urge you to experience the power and impact of creative philanthropy with us.

Give Where You Live

The Foundation has worked to improve the quality of life in Coral Gables by addressing community issues, promoting responsible philanthropy, and connecting donors to critical local needs such as educational, cultural, and historic preservation and the environment. Your support represents a sound investment in giving back to your community.

Establish a Fund

We believe everyone can be a philanthropist. When you partner with us, we’ll help you become one. Creating a fund allows you to address the issues and needs you care about most. The Foundation is poised to steward your philanthropic interests to achieve your local charitable objectives.
