Central Florida Foundation

Today on the #GIVEPodcast we are speaking with Nicole Donaldson, the Vice President of Philanthropy at the Central Florida Foundation.  The Foundation works with families focused on giving back, nonprofits, and across public and private sectors to bring philanthropy to life. It all began in 1994 as a dream around a table of local, passionate people, and has grown to be one of the community’s most trusted resources.

Today on the Give podcast we are speaking with Nicole Donaldson, the Vice President of Philanthropy at the Central Florida Foundation. Central Florida Foundation believes in the power of philanthropy and that thoughtful strategy, combined with a generous community, makes Central Florida a place where everyone feels at home. The Foundation works with families focused on giving back, nonprofits, and across public and private sectors to bring philanthropy to life.

Central Florida Foundations believes that as a community foundation, you can connect across

the different sectors, you can play a vital role in ensuring that you have both the public sector, the private sector, and the independent sector, all around the table and not many people can bring those groups together in such a neutral way. 

One of the things that the Central Florida Foundation has been able to be a part of in the community is focusing on homelessness.  They are currently working with several different organizations to actually move the needle on chronic homelessness, rather than only provide the immediate needs of food and shelter.  The Central Florida Foundation provides support in many forms- all of which are meant to bring the community closer together and help tackle issues from a multifaceted approach, rather than a single mind.
