Extending Our Support for Southwest Florida Non-Profits

SWFL Children’s Charities, Inc. has donated over $20 million to local charities over the past 10 years. Thanks to our generous supporters, we are the second largest donor to Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida, and we also grant funds to Florida Gulf Coast University and Florida SouthWestern State College to provide scholarships and equipment to educate the community’s next generation of pediatric health care professionals.

As part of our mission to support the region’s growing pediatric health care system, in 2018 we expanded our grants program to include other non-profits to collectively receive 10% of auction proceeds. If your organization promotes the health and wellness of children in Southwest Florida, you may be eligible!

Return to this page in the spring of 2019 to submit your grant application. Grants will be funded based on proceeds from the 2020 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest, our signature fundraising event.
