Here’s how you can open your heart to help.
We at the Southwest Florida Community Foundation are heartbroken by the tragedy in Orlando. Our thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones. Our thoughts are, too, with the entire LGBT community in Orlando and beyond. As part of our mission to cultivate regional change for the common good, we hope to create communities where equality and respect are the cornerstone of how we treat each other.
The LGBT Community Fund of Southwest Florida, a fund of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, is accepting donations specifically to provide aid to those directly affected. We will deliver 100% of the contributions to the One Orlando Fund held by our colleagues at the Central Florida Foundation who are working directly with the Orlando Mayor’s Office and local nonprofit organizations providing immediate and long-term assistance to the victims of tragedy, as well the broader community.
