Charlotte Community Foundation



The community foundation in Charlotte County is the Charlotte Community Foundation (CCF). A part of the community for more than 20 years, CCF is the only organization of its type focused exclusively on Charlotte County, Florida.

CCF has its roots in the Adventist Hospital Foundation. When the hospital was sold and became the Charlotte Regional Medical Center in 1995, the Charlotte County Foundation was established as a separate 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, focused specifically on health and education issues.

In 2004, the Foundation’s Board of Directors met with other community leaders to review the organization’s programs, assess its strengths and weaknesses, and define its future for the community. A new vision emerged, and the Board adopted a strategic plan that has established CCF’s focus as a true community foundation, strictly for Charlotte County, Florida. No other community foundation has such a focus.
