Our Coral Gables Community Foundation team was thrilled to attend the Community Foundations Boot Camp last week, hosted at the Community Foundation of Broward. 

The wealth of information sharing between the Foundations in attendance will enhance the way we serve both our fundholders and our community.

Here we are pictured with our friends from the Key Biscayne Community Foundation.😊

The Foundation is privileged to work with organizations such as the Symphonettes as their fiscal sponsor.

The Symphonettes have a long tradition of volunteerism and supporting the arts. Today we met with the new leadership of Symphonettes, president Grace Hucks, treasurer Kate Demos Brown, and parent advisor Stephanie Demos.

The Symphonettes maintain a strong presence in the community, volunteering at events and ushering at concerts and symphonies.  Their yearly seasonal fundraisers include a fall garage sale, a holiday fundraiser, and spring fashion and silent auction.

The Foundation’s own Mary Snow is profiled in today's edition of The New Tropic! What an honor!😁 

Here is an excerpt from the article. You'll find the link below.

The New Tropic: Hi Mary! Let’s start with the basics: Who are you? What do you do?

Mary Snow: I have the great privilege of being a matchmaker between the kind and generous individuals, families and companies of Coral Gables and the non-profit organizations and projects that make the community a better place to live, work, learn and play. It’s a ton of work, but it’s my dream job.

TNT: How does Miami help you do what you do or influence your work?

MS: I really believe in Miami-Dade as a land of opportunity for all in business and in philanthropy. We have an open door for people at all levels and a willingness to help others. I’m surprised and not surprised when I find philanthropists — or at least generous entrepreneurs — where nobody was expecting them! Sounds corny, but it’s a beautiful thing.

TNT: Wax poetic for a minute and tell us: what brings you most alive about this city?

MS: I feel so lucky to be able to live and work in the City where I was born and raised and am now raising my family. We have the best parks, shopping, dining, cultural centers and activities.

TNT: If you could eat only one meal from a local restaurant for the rest of your life, what would it be?

MS: Christy's Caesar Salad! It’s a classic.

TNT: Outside of the obvious stop above, share your other top destinations for where you’d go on your perfect Miami day.

MS: Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, the dog park near our house with our dog, Sandy Paws, and Coral Reef Yacht Club.

TNT: What’s your favorite...

Salvador is having a fantastic time at
the City of Coral Gables' Smash and Splash Summer Tennis Camp at William H. Kerdyk Biltmore Tennis Center and Venetian pool, made possible with a grant from the James Captain Memorial Scholarship.😁🎾💦

The James Captain Memorial Scholarship provides summer camp tuition scholarships to children from Coral Gables and Coconut Grove who might otherwise not be able to attend due to financial constraints.

Founded by Coral Gables resident Tim Anagnost in loving memory of his brother and role model James, Mr. Anagnost feels that all children can benefit from a camp experience.

A bequest is a gift of personal property (such as cash, stocks, tangible property, etc.) made after death, generally through a will or other estate plan.

Including a charitable bequest in your will is a simple way to make a lasting gift to your community. When you make this gift through the Coral Gables Community Foundation, we establish a special fund that benefits the community forever and becomes your personal legacy of giving.

You have the flexibility to rec­ommend the specific organizations you’d like to benefit from grants awarded through your Fund. Everything from your alma mater, to your place of worship and food pantry.

Cash, Stock
Real Estate, Life Insurance
