Start A Fund

We are working with donors to increase public, private, nonprofit investments that foster the pursuit of the regionally coordinated 2040 goal

We have served Southwest Florida since 1976 and pride ourselves on our knowledge of the region. This allows us to provide a personalized approach to donors who are looking to make the biggest impact with their philanthropic dollars. We’re also here to talk to professional advisors about their clients’ philanthropic dreams. We’re incredibly proficient at all of the traditional giving vehicles you expect from a community foundation, whether you want to set up a donor-advised fund, some kind of specialty fund, or put our shared dreams in your will or trust.

As we have seen over decades, big social problems do not yield to traditional approaches. They demand a targeted effort by visionary philanthropists willing to address the root cause of these societal issues. If you are interested in investing in systemic transformation – not just in alleviating the symptoms but in the reason why these issues exist, we would love to discuss the critical role donors play in the pursuit of the 2040 goal. You can join other visionaries in the community in making a big philanthropic investment on this initiative, either with a traditional charitable gift or as debt in the form of an innovation plan. We can show you exactly how your gift will contribute, regardless of the giving level.

Let’s start with a conversation. Gina Dengler is our Philanthropic Services Coordinator. Contact her today. You’ll connect. You’ll learn about each other and proceed from there.

We wouldn’t be able to do the work we do in Southwest Florida today without the substance that’s been built here by over five hundred individuals and couples who have entrusted us with their giving. You’re so important to us. How can we help you?
