Community Builder

The Community Foundation serves as a collaborator, convener and catalyst to address community issues. We invest in a long-term vision and bring diverse people and organizations together to address local issues and needs.

What We Offer

Giving is easy, flexible and tailored to donor wishes. Donations may be made as cash, stocks, property, bequests and more. Donors may create a personal legacy by establishing a charitable fund in their name or the name of a loved one and may be personally involved in recommending the uses of their gift.

Our staff has an in-depth understanding of the issues and opportunities that shape the community. We help donors learn more about the nonprofit agencies and programs that impact the areas that donors care about most.

Our business is community building. We partner with community leaders and local influencers to identify community needs and take action for the benefit of Collier County.
