Welcome to PhilNet: Philanthropy Network for Broward.
PhilNet is an online service the Community Foundation of Broward provides to our Fundholders. It allows them to search for and identify interesting projects that are proposed by nonprofit organizations and then recommend grants. The projects are first thoroughly vetted by Community Foundation staff and before they are posted to PhilNet.

The Community Foundation of Broward is currently refining new priority areas. Until these are finalized, the Foundation is only accepting applications in response to RFPs and/or for posting online for Fundholders’ review. Updates will be posted as this ongoing process develops.
We are proud of an impressive grantmaking history – made possible through Funds created by generous, caring philanthropists.
Since our establishment in 1984, the Community Foundation has awarded more than $45 million to hundreds of local, national and international nonprofits. As a result, we have changed lives and helped fulfill our vision of a brighter, more promising tomorrow.
We ensure that each dollar awarded through a grant is meaningfully invested in our community. To do this, our staff diligently researches important local issues, forges effective collaborations and conducts site visits to see firsthand what the grant will be used for and how the particular program will benefit our residents.
