What We Do

The Charlotte Community Foundation is pleased to be working with Smuggler’s Enterprises, Inc. with the administration of their Foundation. Established in 1995, the Charlotte Community Foundation is a 501c3 that exists to enhance the quality of life in Charlotte County.

Our mission, plain and simple, is to connect people who care with causes that matter. We will be assisting the Smuggler’s Foundation with their grantmaking process. Our role in this process is to serve as a facilitator of philanthropy for the Smuggler’s Foundation.

The true measure of success for an organization is not only judged by the creation of opportunities, but also by the results attained. Opportunities are only translated into success through hard work, planning and experience. The Smuggler’s Foundation working with the Charlotte Community Foundation will be creating opportunities and translating them into positive results.
