10 issues, 5 years, $50 million in grants

What are the issues that most concern you as a Broward resident? What are our most urgent challenges as a community? The Community Foundation of Broward has asked our Fundholders, fellow residents, community leaders and field experts these questions.

At the same time we scrutinized the most recent and reliable local and national research to compare what we were hearing with proven data.

The results have led us to Issues that Matter ten areas that will be the focus of our
grantmaking and community leadership to achieve real and lasting impact. In the next five years, we will invest $50 million to do it. This year, we have invested a record $9.2M into innovative solutions to Broward's most critical community challenges. Join us and together we can make this community a beacon of prosperity, equity and harmony. For Good. For Ever.
