Community foundations across the U.S. have been stepping up their response to COVID-19 — creating new funds to support those affected and partnering with local governments and health organizations to help contain its spread. As the our community’s philanthropic first responder, the Community Foundation of Collier County has activated its emergency relief funds to collect donations to aid in Coronavirus relief.
The Collier Comes Together Fund is designed to complement the work of public health officials and expand local capacity to address the outbreak as effectively as possible. Donations to this fund will help us address urgent needs such as food, medical expenses, rent, and lost income.
Thanks to our donors, together, we are making a difference in meeting the critical needs of our community.

We know our community is passionate about supporting our area in times of crisis. With the activation of the Collier Comes Together Fund, we can help support our nonprofits who will in turn provide aid to the community.
We want to assure donors that help will reach its intended cause. Too often, crowd source fundraising sites can be scams. As the Community Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, donations are tax deductible. 100% of all funds will be distributed for Coronavirus relief with no administrative fees.
The Community Foundation of Collier County is not able to directly help individuals, but supports our nonprofit partners who do. To learn more about organizations in your community that can offer help, please call 211 or text your zip code to 898211.
The Community Foundation of Collier County team continues to work remotely to do our part to contain the spread of the virus. We are still functioning at full speed and are here to help!
