Community Foundation of Sarasota County



The Community Foundation of Sarasota County was created in 1979 by the Southwest Florida Estate Planning Council to encourage philanthropic individuals to leave a charitable legacy to the citizens of Sarasota County.


Since 1979, the Community Foundation has been making the important connection between individuals' personal memories, passions, dreams and the fulfillment of their charitable goals. We help create permanent charitable funds of everlasting impact. These funds ensure that people of vision will have an enduring influence on the life of their community and the charitable causes they hold dear, that is truly For Good.
