About the Campaign


The BE BOLD Leadership Campaign is a promise to the future. The Community Foundation of Broward launched the campaign in 2018 to raise $500 million in endowed resources to ensure that Broward has the reliable, sustainable and permanent support to respond to our greatest challenges today – and for generations to come. 

We owe a great deal to the past leaders, entrepreneurs, visionaries and doers who used their philanthropy to invest in Broward’s future. Their foresight and generosity helped shape the wonderful community we call home today. But significant challenges exist. 

Partnering with the Community Foundation turns generosity into real impact that lasts generations and creates a better Broward for us all. 

The campaign will shine a light on Broward’s next generation of leaders. It’s an opportunity for individuals and families who care about our community to put their fingerprints on Broward’s future. It’s for forward-thinkers. Innovators. Go-getters. People like you who partner with the Community Foundation to be strategic in how they use their philanthropy to make important things happen. Solve big problems. Turn optimism into action.

We refuse to wait to see what the future holds. We’re committed and determined, and we share an unwavering faith in the power of generous people to define the future. What’s next for Broward is in our hands. 

Now is our time to step-up and lead. We invite you to join us. 

We must BE BOLD. 


Every morning we awake in a community filled with opportunity and promise. It’s a place we’re proud to live, work and play. But this wonderful community we call home is at a crossroads:

  • Over the past 35 years, Broward’s population has doubled.
  • Our population is now larger than 13 states and is projected to grow to 2.3 million by 2030.
  • The challenges and opportunities that come with rapid growth are more complex than ever before.

The big issues facing our community weren’t created overnight, and they won’t be solved overnight. It will take BOLD leaders, visionaries, entrepreneurs, and doers – like you – to drive real change and ensure our community thrives in a world that is changing before our eyes.
