The Charlotte Community Foundation was originally established as a nonprofit foundation designed to support Adventist Hospital. When the hospital was sold and became the Charlotte Regional Medical Center in 1995, the foundation transitioned into a separate nonprofit organization called the Charlotte Community Foundation and took on a wider role in the community. From our initial focus on health and education issues, the Foundation now serves a variety of community needs.
Day-to-day Foundation operations are guided by an Executive Director with oversight from a volunteer Board of Directors. Our board members are chosen for their strong ties to the community and their local knowledge of the needs of Charlotte County and its residents. Under this guidance, the Charlotte Community Foundation has set a course that strives to encourage public and private philanthropy and support projects that offer unique solutions to community needs so that we may enhance and improve the quality of life for all of our residents.
