Matching grants of $5,000 to Lee County nonprofit organizations to help establish endowment funds. Grants are intended to improve and strengthen a nonprofit’s ability to achieve its goals, sustain itself over time, and create a measurable impact on the community that it serves.

The Cape Coral Community Foundation encourages local organizations to explore creating endowment funds because:

- Endowments build long-term sustainability for nonprofit organizations
- Endowments provide a growing stream of revenue for nonprofit organizations over good economic times and bad.
- Endowments held at the Cape Coral Community Foundation participate in the Foundation’s investment pool, providing organizations with access to diversified investment vehicles and strategies typically beyond the reach of smaller investors.
