The Greater Escambia Community Foundation, Inc. was formed in 1995 as a nonprofit, community corporation to help donors who have an interest in long-term charitable giving. The donor directs philanthropic gifts to the charity or charities of their choice. The community foundation manages the funds, distributes gifts on behalf of the donor, provides the accounting function, and satisfies all government reporting requirements. This arrangement leaves the donor free to focus only on their charitable interests. The Greater Escambia Community Foundation, Inc. is one of more than 700 community foundations in the United States.
