For five decades, the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties has been a steadfast leader in building vibrant communities through visionary philanthropy. Since our beginnings, we have been focused on meeting the community’s most pressing needs as they change and grow with the times.

We have been the stalwart that our community’s nonprofit ecosystem relies on to fortify its change making work, giving out nearly $200 million in grants and scholarships in 50 years. This booklet not only celebrates our past and present, but it also gives a glimpse into our future; thank you for being a part of it.

With gratitude,
