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.

Charlotte Cares!

Connecting people who care with causes that matter is what we do. We are so fortunate to work with and meet so many kind, caring and generous individuals who share the same passion as we do – passion for our community, a strong desire to enhance and improve the quality of life for all of us in Charlotte County.

Through CHARLOTTE CARES, we see that compassion and generosity is limitless by way of individual donations and legacy or estate gifts that are left to our community in perpetuity through the Charlotte Community Foundation. We understand that every dollar we distribute represents a donor’s legacy, their dream for lasting change and a chance to bring that dream to life.

This is why we enjoy coming together as a team to represent CCF – the Center for Philanthropy in our community. Together, “We Care,” and together we thank you for caring and for your continued support!
