In 1994, ten visionary thinkers gathered around a table to discuss a simple question:
How can we really change Central Florida for the better?

The answer was to join forces not just with their dollars, but with the full power of their vision, passion and community connection. Only then, could they drive deep and lasting social change. This partnership evolved into the Central Florida Foundation.

As our region’s community foundation, Central Florida Foundation serves as a launchpad for high-impact philanthropy. We coordinate the commitment and investment of multiple philanthropists, nonprofits and community partners to target the most critical challenges of today, and those on the horizon, to truly transform our community.
