believe-1Whether you live, work, or play here, you can change the future of the Florida Keys. Gifts to the Florida Keys Future Fund will help meet our community’s most pressing needs. The money will be channeled directly to our local nonprofits that best serve the community through a competitive grants process beginning in 2017. All gifts to the Fund are fully tax deductible.

“If you’ve ever wondered what you can do to make a difference, now is the opportunity,” says Roger Heinen, Board Chairman of the Community Foundation. “All our partners who support the Fund will help as many people as possible and ensure the potential, power, and possibility of a better future for our wonderful Keys.”

The Florida Keys Future Fund was established this year as part of the Community Foundation’s 20th Anniversary.

Grants will support the best projects each year that impact our community in the areas of education, environment, healthcare, arts, recreation, and much more, throughout the entire Florida Keys. Application information and deadlines will be announced later this Fall.

The Community Foundation and its partners have returned more than $21 million to our community since 1996 through CFFK grant programs and generous grants from Donor Funds and Endowments.

This year’s “Vision 20/20” Grants are examples of what the Future Fund grants will do — support local nonprofits throughout the Keys in all areas, including the arts, education, healthcare, environment and more.
