Our Story

Established in 1973, Cape Coral Community Foundation serves as a philanthropic organization built on hometown pride and civic-minded giving. Today, as we emerge as The Global Center for Generosity, we remain focused on identifying solutions to the community’s most critical issues: equality, quality of life, health and education – while expanding our reach to national and international partners who can help the Foundation expand its mission.

We partner with individuals, families and corporations to facilitate and administer philanthropic efforts. At Cape Coral Community Foundation, we connect our supporters with critical needs in the community and beyond. As the Center for Generosity, the Foundation’s goal is to shape public policy fairly for all community members, partner with nonprofit organizations in order to deliver resources in an efficient, strategic manner and empower the community to support the common good.
