The Tabor Award

The Elmer Tabor Generosity Award is presented annually to Southwest Florida community members known for exceptional generosity, motivational civic and charitable responsibility, and inspirational leadership in making a difference in Cape Coral and beyond. Established as the namesake of the Foundation’s first honoree – Elmer Tabor – one of Cape Coral’s most generous and civic-minded community members. Tabor moved with his family to Cape Coral in 1960 when the community was just getting started. His legacy of generosity began soon after and continues today.
