The BE BOLD Leadership Campaign is a unique opportunity for people who love Broward to step up and use their philanthropy to build a brighter future. It's a chance to change things in a big BOLD way. To create a legacy of impact that will live on forever.

The generosity of local philanthropists has helped our community become what it is today. But the Broward we pass to the next generation will be defined by the long-term investments we make moving forward.

Now more than ever, Broward needs the support of forward-thinkers, visionaries and doers – like you – to create personalized endowed charitable Funds for Broward. It's the only way to ensure our community has the right resources to tackle the Issues That Matter. It's how Broward will take care of itself for generations to come.

The BE BOLD Leadership Campaign seeks to fuel innovation. Inspire new thinking. Rally new leaders. And raise $500 million by the Community Foundation’s 40th anniversary in 2024.

Adding $500 million in endowed charitable Funds will create a permanent philanthropic resource able to meet Broward’s biggest challenges today and forever.

When completed, the BE BOLD Leadership Campaign will:

  • Deliver nearly $3 million in grants each month to tackle Broward’s Issues that Matter.
  • Support $1 billion in game-changing philanthropy over the Foundation’s next three decades.
  • Ensure permanent, nimble resources are available to keep pace the emerging challenges that will face our fast-growing community.
