The ninth annual Give Where You Live Collier is a Collier County-wide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy. Built upon the idea that everyone can be a philanthropist, this project provides an easy way to support the education and basic needs efforts of 37 nonprofits.
As part of Give Where You Live Collier, the campaign’s sponsors, the Community Foundation of Collier County and The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, have generously donated $500,000 in matching funds. For every dollar we raise, we receive a portion of the match, making your impact go further!
The Conservancy of Southwest Florida is a leading environmental conservation organization dedicated to protecting the water, land, and wildlife, which make our home such a special place. As the population in Southwest Florida grows, so do the demands we place on our unique, natural resources. For more than 59 years, the Conservancy has worked with community leaders, businesses, partner agencies, and individuals to find a sensible balance between the demands of a growing population and the preservation of our natural treasures.
Our education work - at schools, out in the community, and here at the Nature Center - is critical because we believe the more people learn about the environment, the more willing they are to protect it.
From Pre-K through gray, the Environmental Education team at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida is active with all ages. We reach more than 10,000 local school students each year through field trips to the Conservancy Nature Center and outreach programs at area schools.
The Presenting Sponsors, Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation and the Collier Community Foundation, will be matching.
