The Community Foundation has worked hand in hand with area nonprofits for more than 55 years, bringing together essential research, partners and funding to give nonprofits what they need to thrive. From arts to education, veterans, healthcare, housing and beyond, we invest in capacity-building initiatives and programs to support individual nonprofits and the sector as a whole.
Together with area funders, The Community Foundation helped establish the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida in 2002 to connect, strengthen and advocate for a strong nonprofit community. Since then, we have provided ongoing general operating support, and helped to fund programs and new initiatives.
Nonprofits across Northeast Florida are working together to solve complex challenges, pooling their resources and expertise to achieve a greater impact. Investing in capacity for Jax Care Connect, 904WARD and other collective efforts achieves far-reaching results while creating room for efforts to grow.
“The Beaches Museum has benefited greatly from the Community Foundation’s capacity building grants, through two grants for strategic planning. As a small organization, these grants have allowed us to move the needle for our organization in a measurable and impactful way. We are better at what we do and how we do it.”
– Christine Hoffman, Director of the Beaches Museum
