Charlotte Cares Logo, Charlotte Community Foundation


CHARLOTTE CARES allows the Foundation to increase our capacity to provide additional and continued support for nonprofit projects, the development of community initiatives and to respond to the community’s most critical issues and needs.


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.

Giving is generational. We must, by example, show our children and grandchildren that giving back to our community is a responsibility. A Donor Advised Fund at Charlotte Community Foundation allows parents and grandparents to designate children and grandchildren as directors who can recommend which nonprofit organizations and programs, including Charlotte Cares, receive donations annually. We are proud to reside in Charlotte County and proud to serve as directors of the Mary & Emily Byrski Donor Advised Fund supporting our community.

Teach your children well. Build a legacy of giving through Charlotte Cares and the Charlotte Community Foundation.
