Our History

In 2001, seven Florida foundation leaders - Allegany Franciscan Ministries, Dade Community Foundation (now The Miami Foundation), Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation, Health Foundation of South Florida, Jessie Ball duPont Fund, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the MacArthur Foundation - shared a vision of, and commitment to, the importance of cooperative, collaborative relationships between business, government and nonprofits. Their leadership led to a vision of a united Florida with foundations, government and business leaders devoted to cooperation and collaboration that would more effectively leverage contributions of each sector. The Network founders believed that innovative leadership and a unified voice were necessary to effectively promote philanthropy, foster collaboration and advance public policy.
