Established in 1988 by a visionary group of civic leaders, the Manatee Community Foundation is dedicated to serving the donors of Manatee County, matching their charitable interests with the needs of the community while also providing ongoing assistance to area nonprofits.

As a supporting organization of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, the Manatee Community Foundation is able to pool assets, share financial and legal services, and access other resources to better focus on fulfilling and stewarding charitable intent in Manatee County.
