 Farris Foundation

The Community Foundation of Northwest Florida was established in 1995 through a grant from the D.W. McMillan Foundation. Originally formed to serve the needs in the Greater Escambia County, CFNWF now serves all of Northwest Florida. For more than 15 years, the Community Foundation of Northwest Florida has been assisting donors in establishing long-term charitable giving that reflects their individual philanthropic interests while positively impacting our local communities.


Florida Philanthropic Network is a statewide association of grantmakers working to strengthen philanthropy through research, education and public policy.
