Financials and Stewardship

At Gulf Coast Community Foundation, we take seriously and as a matter of character our responsibility to be good stewards of the community assets and donor funds entrusted to us. Gulf Coast has grown significantly since we were born in 1995 from the sale of The Venice Hospital. Today, we are the philanthropic home of more than 650 families, individuals, organizations, and businesses that have established charitable funds here. And that "Gulf Coast family"continues to grow.


Gulf Coast was also among the first community foundations to be confirmed in compliance with National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations, the most rigorous standards in philanthropy for operational quality, integrity, and accountability. We answer to our donors and our nonprofit partners, and our goal is to maximize return on investment of our charitable resources and transform our region through bold and proactive philanthropy.

In our 2015 fiscal year (July 2014 - June 2015), Gulf Coast’s assets grew to $274.8 million. Contributions to the foundation increased to a record $33.4 million, and together with our donors, we invested $27.3 million in grants, initiatives, and scholarships last year.

We encourage you to review the documents below on Gulf Coast Community Foundation’s grantmaking, finances, and investments. We think you’ll see, with each figure and graph, how strong we have built—not to mention reinforced—the foundation of our community.
