What We Do

Collaboratory offers numerous types of grantmaking programs, including donor-advised funds, endowments, scholarships, field-of-interest funds, giving circles, and agency funds. We are leveraging a portion of our funds to increase diverse investment in the work of coalition partners to achieve the 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.

Given no single entity can solve a big social problem alone, Collaboratory is using our community leadership role to resource, engage, and coordinate regional coalitions of cross-sector partners aligned around shared goals to change regional outcomes and make SWFL an even better place to live, work, learn, and play.​

We are committed to building the region’s capacity to support five coalitions while also providing training and resources to regional partner organizations to strengthen our collective ability to solve problems together.​ We plan to offer at least 12 FREE capacity building workshops annually.
