The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce staff, Board of Directors and membership truly believe in “community.” We are delighted to be associated as a major funder of the CHARLOTTE CARES program and will always continue to raise awareness of this incredible cause that does so much for “our” community.
Through CHARLOTTE CARES we see that compassion and generosity is limitless by way of individual donations that are connecting our Chamber members to causes they care about through the Charlotte Community Foundation.

CHARLOTTE CARES is an exciting new initiative led by the Charlotte Community Foundation (CCF). Our goal is to increase the amount of grant funds available to qualifying nonprofit agencies in the Charlotte community.
Our community is truly a treasure. Through generous donors like you, in 2016, CCF was able to provide a total of $50,000 in grants to 9 nonprofit agencies in Charlotte County. Unfortunately, we had 28 other agencies requesting an additional $230,000 which we could not provide due to lack of funds. Non Profits look to us for support, and through CHARLOTTE CARES, we will raise additional funds in order to provide even more assistance in 2017.
You. Your business. Your civic organization. Your family. You can become involved in philanthropy! We have created an opportunity for every size and budget. Every dollar helps.
Now. Charlotte Cares is your opportunity to become proactive in helping those in need in your community. Simply put, we need donors like you to help those in need. By joining us in this important initiative, you will become part of the Charlotte Community Foundation family.
