                                                                  16 local charitable organizations were         
                                                                  awarded grants totaling more than $45,000.


Our 2018 Membership Drive  is in full swing. Please help us reach our goal of 300 household memberships.


Annual membership dues are our primary source of the funds we need to support local charitable projects - feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, protecting children, developing young minds, and so much more.


Please consider giving a fully tax-deductible gift of $100 or more. Nearly one in three gave more than the $100 minimum in 2016.

"Giving Beyond Our Gates"

The VGCC Foundation is a charitable organization serving the greater Venice area.


The Foundation was created in 2005 to support local non-profit groups through private donations from current and former VGCC residents, and through fund-raising events.


Our mission is to extend the VGCC spirit of giving beyond our gates. We are dedicated to helping those in need in the greater Venice area by providing financial grants to carefully-selected organizations. Each year, a committee of volunteers scrutinizes grant applications to select those that provide the most important health, educational, social, environmental, and cultural benefits to Venice and adjacent communities.


Foundation participation is voluntary, and all contributions are fully tax-deductible. Annual contributions of $100 or more entitle the donors to Foundation membership and full voting rights.


Early in our history, we selected the Gulf Coast Community Foundation to provide us with administrative, financial, and technical expertise. Importantly, as "donor-advisors", our own Board of Directors determines how all of our funds are distributed.


In our first eleven years, we have awarded 175 grants totaling more than $376,000 to 62 different local organizations.
