Testimonial Block 1
The Cape Coral Community Foundation has positively impacted our community through its education and an ongoing reminder that everyone can be a philanthropist. It’s changing the way people think and act, filling the gaps in generosity to provide opportunities for all individuals to donate to a cause or organization no matter how small that contribution may be.
