Happy 4th of July!
Celebrating Our Philanthropic Community
With a focus on funds, the Coral Gables Community Foundation is able to assist philanthropic-minded people in achieving their goals. Whether you would like to create a patriotic fund, scholarship fund, enhance art and culture in our community or improve our green space, we can make that happen. The process is simple: choose a cause, determine the donation you would like to make, and set up a fund with us. Without the time consuming task of creating your own nonprofit, you can have the same community impact while we take care of everything else. For additional information contact our Executive Director, Andria Hanley at 305/446.9670 or
