The Copperleaf Charitable Foundation (CCF) was established in 2004 as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Over the years CCF has raised funds to help support local charities, making grants of more than $1.3 million for food, education and health care. Every member of the Copperleaf Golf Club is a member of the Copperleaf Charitable Foundation. The Copperleaf Charitable Foundation has been recognized with awards and media coverage as a leader in Southwest Florida for donations and participation in community events.
The Foundation is staffed entirely by Copperleaf members, which minimizes expenses and maximizes benefits to charities. Last year’s management and general expenses were less than 3% of revenue.
WHO WE ARE
WHAT WE DO
Fundraising has primarily been through our annual drive, events (e.g. golf tournaments, home tours, auctions, social events) and corporate sponsors.
Since 2012, the Foundation has been building an Endowment Fund to ensure future assistance to those in need. This past fiscal year, the Endowment Fund provided more than $18,000 to fund our grants to charities.
