As a community foundation, we are committed to addressing the complex challenges of Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

We are committed to building vibrant communities by uniting the power of charitable giving and innovative strategies to improve the quality of life.

From community revitalization to education to positive youth development, our knowledge and expertise ensures our donors are able to maximize the impact of their giving. Our proven track record of sound investments ensures those generous gifts are able to continue creating meaningful change into the future.

Many commercial companies are capable of handling regulatory compliance and basic functionality most donor funds require. However, our specialized approach combines expert knowledge of the local landscape with compassion and services designed to foster mutually beneficial partnerships between donors, advisors, recipients and the larger community.
