Central Florida Foundation

Central Florida Foundation is a public grantmaking foundation established in 1994 as a home for Central Florida philanthropists. Today, thanks to the generosity of hundreds of individuals, families and corporations, the Community Foundation has grown to hold nearly 400 named charitable funds with assets of more than $50 million, and has awarded cumulative grants of more than $17 million.

By managing and investing donor funds, connecting donors with projects they felt passionate about and enabling donors to make informed decisions through research, the Community Foundation fulfills its mission of "Building Community by Building Philanthropy."
