Charity Nominations 2021-2022
Over our first two years, the Pelican Sound Charitable Foundation has awarded $105,000 in grants to 13 local charities that had been nominated by residents of Pelican Sound. These organizations directly serve people in need in Southwest Florida by providing food, shelter, clothing, health, or educational programs such as literacy or job skills.
Last fall, residents of our community nominated 20 different charities for our 2022 Grants Program. Seventeen of those organizations met the Foundation's qualifications and have been invited to submit grant applications. The grant applications will be vetted by our Grants Committee and then approved by the Foundation's Board of Directors. An announcement of the projects and programs will be made in March.
