Together with our donors, our mission is to serve as the leading catalyst for building vibrant communities through meaningful philanthropy.

Community foundations change lives. Their unique role in a region enables donors to transform their philanthropic passion into meaningful impact.

At their most powerful, community foundations can foster a culture of giving and help create long-lasting change in the region they serve and overall, in society.

What We Do:

  • Impactful grant-making and facilitate philanthropic support to improve quality of life for our residents
  • Create positive community change
  • Convene and collaborate with advocates, nonprofits and community leaders
  • Strive to be an expert on the most urgent issues facing our communities
  • Make charitable giving convenient and impactful

How We Do It:

Supporting and partnering with exceptional nonprofit organizations that address our most pressing needs and bring positive change to our communities.

We make charitable giving easy and fulfilling by connecting donors with opportunities that are meaningful to them and by working with financial advisors to make their clients’ charitable giving simple, efficient and effective.


"The Community Foundation is the lead philanthropic funder in Palm Beach and Martin Counties. Many organizations, including us, look to them for cues on issues important to funders. They help identify community needs and priorities, and are innovators in philanthropy. They are the thought leaders, and conveners. They are a quiet, consistent, persistent presence in our community and make a difference in the most understated way." - Rena Blades, retired CEO of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County
