About Us

Since 2005, The Venice Golf and Country Club Foundation has been supporting nonprofit agencies that serve the greater Venice area through its grant program.

  • Over $700,000 in grants have been awarded

  • Approximately 70 local nonprofit organizations have benefited

The Foundation’s funding comes primarily from annual membership dues of $100 (or more) from residents of The Venice Golf and Country Club, “fun"raising events and other private donations. Participation is voluntary and contributions are tax-deductible.


The VGCC Foundation is a donor advised fund administered by the Gulf Coast Community Foundation; however, the VGCC Foundation Board of Directors retains decision making powers over how our funds are distributed.
