Give Where You Live

Give Where We Live: Your Community. Your Philanthropy. Your Foundation.

Fewell Park

There is such a strong sense of pride in our community. Pride in where we live, where we work, where we raise our families and where we choose to make a difference. For 25 years, the Coral Gables Community Foundation (CGCF), has been enabling people with philanthropic interests to easily and effectively support the causes they care about—immediately or through their estate plans. 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. Whether through one of our more than 40 funds, our annual Gala or our Tour of Kitchens fundraiser, the scholarships we award or our Board initiatives, we take seriously the goal of achieving our mission. With this in mind we encourage you to Give Where You Live and become a Friend of the Foundation, a Merrick Society Member or open a Fund to support the community needs in your area of interest. Thank you in advance for showing your love and dedication to your community and for considering a tax deductible donation to the Coral Gables Community Foundation. The Foundation is poised to steward your philanthropic interests to achieve your local charitable objectives.

Making a Significant Gift for Something Significant

We believe that everyone can be a philanthropist. When you partner with us, we’ll help you become one. Our focus is philanthropy and community. Our donors and supporters like to work with us because of that. We provide excellent personal service and a deep understanding of your community and its long-term needs.

Thinking About Leaving a Legacy—Why Wait?

We talk with each donor and help them determine what causes are important to them. With that information, a custom, charitable fund is created. The donor chooses how much and what kind of assets will be used to start the fund. Since 1991, the Foundation has helped individuals, families and businesses create personal, permanent and powerful legacies by establishing custom, charitable funds. We ask you the significant questions: What do you want to achieve with your Life? What do you want to achieve with your Assets? What do you want to achieve with your Legacy?

Creative Philanthropy for a Local Impact

We make philanthropy local, easy and enjoyable, helping the donor leave a lasting legacy that will impact their community. In doing this, we offer custom, charitable solutions for each individual donor today for generations to come. A powerful and meaningful way for individuals to create a philanthropic legacy for their community and the causes they care about.
