Mary N. Porter Capital Project: Grant Applications Now Open

April 8, 2021
Mary N. Porter

Mary Porter was a philanthropist and humanitarian who resided in Broward County. She believed that giving back is a part of who we are as a people. Mary’s giving spanned a range of issues in Broward including the arts, animal welfare, health and human services and more. She enjoyed investing in community solutions and was excited to be a part of a community of active givers. Mary worked with the Community Foundation of Broward during her lifetime and wanted us to be the stewards of her philanthropy after she was gone. One of three Funds created from her estate, the Mary N. Porter Legacy Fund at the Community Foundation of Broward, is designed to support capital projects including new construction, renovations and other major capital initiatives to improve the quality of services in Broward County. This is the first Fund in Broward that specifically addresses the capital needs of our community. These projects will carry the Mary N. Porter name in our community forever.
