Working to Improve Life in Northeast Florida for All

Our work is much more than serving as a repository for donor funds, as important as that work is. We have a strong history and commitment to changing our communities, for building bridges between people who are committed to making the world a better place and the causes to which they are dedicated. Learn more about some of our key focus areas below.

Supporting Neighborhoods

We work with residents and their trusted local organizations on issues like blight, reducing homelessness, economic development and building generational wealth.

Black Philanthropy Fund

We support efforts to advance equity for our community, and provide philanthropic leadership for focused giving to historically marginalized citizens.

Affordable Housing

We make grants and connect donors to affordable housing initiatives, and invest local capital to help bring more units to market.

Arts

We nurture individual artists and small arts organizations with annual grantmaking and provide opportunities for greater participation for the wider community.

Donors Forum

Donors Forum brings together our fundholders, as well as representatives of private, corporate, independent and family foundations in Northeast Florida, to learn about community and philanthropic issues.

Women’s Giving Alliance

We support the Women’s Giving Alliance, a collective giving initiative that is making a measurable and lasting impact on the lives of women and girls in Northeast Florida.

“…Giving money away thoughtfully is hard work, but if you do the due diligence and you have passion and compassion, you can be a philanthropist at any level.”

– Delores Barr Weaver
