The BE BOLD Leadership Campaign in its first year has already reached the $100 million milestone – and we are just getting started.
This campaign is our most ambitious effort yet to ensure a brighter future for Broward. The campaign seeks to fuel innovation. To inspire new thinking. To use the power of endowment to create philanthropic resources to tackle Broward’s biggest challenges – today and forever.
The goal is to raise $500 million in endowed Funds by the Community Foundation’s 40th anniversary in 2024.
Leading the way, Foundation Board members are stepping up to create endowed charitable Funds for Broward. Here are a few examples of why they are joining other visionaries and doers in this movement to BE BOLD:
Steven W. Hudson, Chairman of the Board
“Broward County is growing rapidly and has many needs.
The Community Foundation of Broward must grow to continue to provide bold leadership on the complicated issues we face today, as well as those that emerge in the future.
The BE BOLD Leadership Campaign is integral to our future and will empower the Community Foundation to continue to fulfill our mission for Broward County.”
Doria M. Camaraza, Board Member
“The Community Foundation’s BE BOLD Leadership Campaign allows me to have a direct and personal connection to how my children and I will be making a difference in the community.
We can see the immediate impact our support is making.
Our support allows my children to continue to have a lasting impact on the community through their continued involvement in the Community Foundation.”
Cynthia Borders-Byrd, Board Member
“My endowed Fund at the Foundation enables me to support organizations I feel personally connected to.
Over time, my Fund will provide financial support that will far exceed the amount of the original gift I made to establish my Fund.
It’s the perfect way to make sure my favorite causes are taken care of forever. That’s how I choose to BE BOLD.”
