Gulf Coast Community Foundation
Together with our donors, we transform our region through bold and proactive philanthropy. Our foundation was created in 1995 with proceeds from the sale of The Venice Hospital, a community hospital that had been founded by local citizens more than four decades earlier. Today, we have become the philanthropic home of more than 650 families who have created their own charitable funds at Gulf Coast, and together we have invested over $260 million in grants in the areas of health and human services, civic and economic development, education, arts and culture, and the environment.
