GIVING BRIEFS

Habitat to receive matching grant

Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity was one of five nonprofits selected to participate in the Women’s Foundation of Southwest Florida’s 2017 Matching Grants Cycle. The Foundation serves Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Hendry and Glades counties. Its affiliate was selected because of the impact Habitat’s program has on women and girls in Southwest Florida.

Donations received between July 1 and Aug. 31 through the foundation’s grant site will be matched by the Foundation — up to $6,500. Habitat’s affiliate has partnered with 383 families over the past 30 years, and its goal is to continue giving a hand up to qualified local

low-income residents. With your help we can continue to make a positive difference in our community.

Visit www.fundwomenfl.org/charlotte habitat to access Charlotte County Habitat’s fundraising page, then click the “Donate” button located under the Charlotte County Habitat banner to make your donation and help Habitat reach its goal.
