A Word from Our President


The Community Foundation mourns the police killing of George Floyd and the subsequent anguish and suffering experienced by his family, Blacks, and everyone impacted by this injustice. In the emotionally charged aftermath, many of us are feeling frustration, exhaustion, and a deepened concern for social justice. 

The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties pledges to play a role in advancing racial equity."

- Brad Hurlburt, President & CEO

As philanthropic and community leaders, we stand with those in the community who seek to eliminate racial injustice. We pledge to foster an environment that advances racial equity. 

Thanks to a collaborative dialogue and representing a pillar of our strategic plan, we have launched a Racial Equity Hub on our website. It is designed to support nonprofits, individuals and groups working to achieve racial equity. 

In partnership with government, business, and philanthropy, as well as our community partners, we will do our part to facilitate dialogue, education, and advocacy for systemic change.
 
It is the first step, but we are listening and learning together. We encourage you to stand in solidarity with us to build the trust necessary to heal our community and nation.
