Supporting local nonprofits who use the investments to improve their impact

Central Florida Foundation has grown to more than $60 million in assets since 1994 and has awarded grants of more than $40 million. We support nonprofits that use the investment to improve their organization’s performance, effectiveness, impact, and overall sustainability. We share our deep community knowledge with donors so they can make stronger giving decisions and help professional advisors serve their clients better.

Types of Grants

Community Investment Grant Rounds

Our Community Investment Grant Rounds occur twice a year, in the spring and fall, and are limited to nonprofits in the Central Florida region. Our fall grant round is specific to our Winter Park Community Foundation funds. There is no application for these grants and building a portrait in Nonprofit Search is the first step to qualify for consideration.
