2022 Community Builder Award Recipient
Central Florida Foundation
The Central Florida Foundation stewards philanthropic dollars on behalf of individuals, families, and nonprofits. The foundation partners with people, organizations and businesses who are determined to make a difference in their community. Knowing that true change demands more than dollars and cents, Central Florida Foundation fosters collaboration, fuels ideas, and spearheads the innovation that will transform our region for good. Thanks to generous donors and community partners, the Foundation has invested more than $80 million in the community since 1994. By combining data, resources, and a collective drive to do better, the Foundation established Thrive Central Florida to collaboratively confront the five critical challenges facing our region (economic stability, healthcare, livability, education, community & social connection) through data, dialogue, and decisions that drive measurable action and impact across the focus areas.
