The St Joe Community Foundation’s mission is to enrich the quality of life of the people who live, work, and play in Northwest Florida. Created in 1999, the Foundation provides grants to the areas of education, environmental stewardship, building healthier communities, and programs that honor the cultural arts. We believe that St Joe is creating communities that will have a long – range impact on the towns and lives of people in the region. 

Working together, we can make Northwest Florida an even better place to live.

At The St. Joe Community Foundation (Foundation) we consider this area our home - a treasure that deserves thoughtful stewardship. That is why we are investing in the future of the region. We want to be sure what is unique stays that way for generations to come. It is our desire to create a legacy of value for each of the many special communities in this wonderful area that we all call "home". The Commitment: The Foundation was established as a 501(C)3 private foundation dedicated to the ongoing improvement of the quality of life for the people who live, work and play in Northwest Florida.
