Did you know that the Community Foundation has several funds that strengthen our ability to tackle critical issues, develop solutions and provide services to the people and organizations in our community at the right time? Several funds of Community Foundation for Brevard are actively raising funds from the general public to support some creative and important local projects.


Better Together Fund – These unrestricted gifts provide the Foundation with flexibility in its charitable purpose, allowing the Community Foundation to respond to innovative projects and changing community needs.

Brevard Relief Fund – The Brevard Relief Fund was seeded by a generous donor to help address local needs in the aftermath of a disaster. Learn about our COVID-19 response

Children and Youth Fund – Youth development programs help under-served children achieve their full potential by focusing on programs that build social, ethical, emotional and physical health, as well as cognitive skills.

Community Foundation Fund – This fund is the engine that keeps the Foundation going. By contributing to this fund, you are helping the Foundation grow faster to help improve the quality of life for all in Brevard County. In addition to supporting the day to day operations of the Foundation, this fund also provides educational and training opportunities for professionals in the nonprofit community, as well as individual donors across the County.

Community in Conversation Fund – Supporting organizations and programs that aim to build relationships and facilitate conversation around a variety of subjects, to include civic engagement and public and community affairs, with the purpose of building a healthy and vibrant community.

Community Scholarship Fund – Established in 2018 by a visionary anonymous donor, the endowed Community Scholarship Fund provides financial aid for deserving Brevard County residents pursuing post-secondary education, with priority for students who will be the first in their families to receive a bachelor’s degree.

Endowment for the Arts – A thriving arts community supports economic development and enhances the quality of life by providing opportunities to socialize, learn and celebrate the diversity and creativity of our community. Your investment in the arts keeps our community vibrant.

Equity and Inclusion Fund –  All residents in our community should have the opportunity to fulfill their highest potential. When we tackle the existing gaps in racial equity and inclusion, we will expand opportunities to many people across our community. Only then can our community experience the necessary change to be a place where all our residents can learn, work, and further contribute to a healthy, thriving and prosperous place to call home.

Exploration Arts! Fund – Thanks to gifts from Nancy Dillen and other individuals, we have established the “Exploration Arts! Fund” to champion the creation of a multi-disciplinary and experiential arts center for the Space Coast within the next five years. (Learn more about this initiative)

Veterans Fund  – We recognize the opportunity in our community to support the strengths and meet the needs of veterans and their families, through grants from the endowed Veterans Fund and the Brevard Veterans Resource Network.
