Copperleaf Charitable Foundation
Since 2004, the Copperleaf Charitable Foundation, a tax exempt 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, has raised funds to support local charities. The Copperleaf Foundation has been recognized by the local community with awards and press releases as a leader in Southwest Florida for donations and participation in community activities. The Foundation is staffed entirely by Copperleaf community volunteers, which minimizes expenses and maximizes benefits to charities. Every property owner in Copperleaf is a member of the Copperleaf Charitable Foundation.
Fundraising has primarily been through golf tournaments, home tours and donations from individuals. These efforts have been very successful and to date approximately $650,000 has been given to over 25 local charities that offer nourishment, healthcare, and education to those in need.
Additionally, the Foundation is building an Endowment Fund to insure the continued future support for our less fortunate neighbors. The “Copper Tree” wall featured in the Clubhouse recognizes contributions to the Foundation Endowment Fund. Honorarium leafs are awarded in the name of living member or their family. Memorial leafs are awarded in the name of a deceased member.
