I t takes more than a favorable climate, beaches and tourist attractions to create a quality life for businesses, workers and all residents in Southwest Florida. Quality of life includes making sure important needs such as food, housing, education, healthcare, safe neighborhoods and more are met. While a growing economy can create a higher standard of living, it also can provide funds to help the less fortunate so they in turn can contribute back to the community. Organizations such as the Charlotte County Community Foundation and others work to make life better for everyone in the county. The Community Foundation sees its mission as " connecting people who care with causes that matter." They advocate for philanthropy and support other nonprofit organizations. They respond to immediate community needs as well as help build a sustainable structure for the future. By working with donors and nonprofits, the foundation helps build stronger communities and improve conditions to create the best opportunities for everyone.
