Grants to Southwest Florida nonprofit organizations for projects and initiatives that meet community needs and serve the residents of the region. The Southwest Florida region primarily includes Collier, Charlotte, and Lee counties. Grants are available in three categories:

1) Seniors Initiative

Initiatives that help people in the region age successfully and remain healthy, informed and engaged. To help drive creative new ways to keep seniors productive and connected to their communities, the Cape Coral Community Foundation support programs designed to help seniors live independently as they age.

2) Collective Impact & Collaborative Innovation Initiative

The Cape Coral Community Foundation is committed to achieving positive impact with regards to critical focus areas impacting our region. CCCF uses the term “collective impact” to describe sectors working together to make changes in our community. What’s new about this approach is when organizations – nonprofits, corporations, government, and foundations – share goals and measures of success for a specific community challenge, the pace of change is accelerated.

Focus areas:

a) Arts & Culture

b) Education
