Foundation announces call for Community Impact Grants

By Staff | Jun 5, 2019

The Southwest Florida Community Foundation opened its annual call for Community Impact Grant applicants on June 3, which will remain open to applicants until July 31.

The funding for the program comes from Field of Interest funds. Donors and philanthropists establish Field of Interest funds to address their desires and intentions for Southwest Florida, including Hendry, Glades, Charlotte, Collier, and Lee counties. The grant program reflects the intent of donors who have entrusted their money to the foundation.

In 2018, $596,923 was awarded to 21 local nonprofits in the annual grant process – both established and new programs – that are designed to increase the quality of life in sustainable and equitable ways for Southwest Floridians. Grants are made from the Field of Interest funds, as well as individual and corporate funds resulting from the foundation’s grants process which includes the Compassionate Shark Tank audience.
