Southwest Florida Community Foundation Inc.



For the past 30 years the Southwest Florida Community Foundation has been a catalyst for improving the quality of life of all who live and work in Southwest Florida.


The Foundation was created in 1976 with $500 from First National Bank of Fort Myers by a small group of attorneys, trust officers and community leaders who had the vision and foresight to plan for the future needs of our rapidly growing community.
