At The St. Joe Community Foundation, Inc. (Foundation) we consider our grants to area nonprofits as investments, not charity or obligations. Supporting the region’s heritage and culture, while investing in education, healthcare, cultural arts and the environment, helps to make Northwest Florida even better, and is the Foundation’s everyday mission.
Founded by The St. Joe Company (JOE), a long-time Northwest Florida neighbor, the Foundation is a resource for bringing a variety of community-focused initiatives home to Bay and Walton Counties. The Foundation is committed to preserving and protecting this unique part of Florida we call home.
The Foundation has contributed more than $18 Million in grants and pledges to local nonprofits that care about Northwest Florida like we do. Over time, these Foundation grants will continue to impact the quality of life in Northwest Florida for generations to come.
We have made a big difference in a short amount of time. Our grants attest to our commitment to expand educational opportunities, improve healthcare, to conserve natural and historic places and to increase cultural arts offerings. Whether its contributing to an educational scholarship fund, supporting the area artificial reefs for increased marine life, funding a 211 Information and Referral line or donating new library books, the Foundation is working to promote and create new partnerships and alliances that will enrich the lives of all who live and work in Bay and Walton Counties.
We invite you to explore the Foundation website and view our recent contributions, meet our Board of Trustees, and find out more about the Foundation, its mission, and how the Foundation may help you.
