Together with our donors, we transform our region through bold and proactive philanthropy. Our foundation was created in 1995 with proceeds from the sale of The Venice Hospital, a community hospital that had been founded by local citizens more than four decades earlier. Today, we have become the philanthropic home of more than 750 families who have created their own charitable funds at Gulf Coast, and together we have invested over $270 million in grants in the areas of health and human services, civic and economic development, education, arts and culture, and the environment. Contact us to learn how Gulf Coast Community Foundation can help you, your family, your nonprofit organization, or your business give back to our community.
