Our Mission Statement

The Pelican Sound Charitable Foundation (PSCF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Formed in 2019, the mission of the PSCF is to support charitable and educational programs of organizations that improve the lives of Southwest Florida residents in need.

What We Do

The Pelican Sound Charitable Foundation was formed as a non-profit organization dedicated to continuing the Pelican Sound tradition of giving back to those in need. Formation of the PSCF allows us to work together to continue to serve others. The charities that are supported by the PSCF are nominated annually by the members of our community. We all can contribute to the Foundation through donations of our time, participating in fundraising events, and financial donations. The Board of Directors for the Foundation meets on the fourth Thursday monthly.

The possibilities are endless! We are excited about what our community does when we come together to serve those in need.
