Over our first four years, the Pelican Sound Charitable Foundation has awarded $390,000 in grants to 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.
Thank you to all PS community members who continue to support our mission. Your participation in our events, as well as your generous donations, are appreciated as we continue “Making a Difference Together.”
