Our Impact

Collective Giving

The Power of Collective Giving

Collective giving is a powerful vehicle of philanthropy that has achieved astonishing results for communities and diverse populations within Northeast Florida. Coming together with fellow philanthropists who share your same interests, and pooling your resources to give strategically, you can achieve an impact far beyond what one can accomplish alone. Since 2001, The Community Foundation has supported several collective giving initiatives which continue to make an impact today.

The Power of Collective Giving

At their 20th anniversary in 2022, WGA members had awarded over $7.7 million in grants since 2002 to improve the lives of more than 30,000 women and girls in Northeast Florida.

Strengthening Connectivity & Engagement

Collective giving brings together like-minded philanthropists, community leaders and nonprofits, creating a deeper level of understanding and a greater awareness of complex issues through shared efforts. Actively involved in grantmaking, advocacy, events and outcomes, you will find a strong connection of engagement and connectivity.
