Estero Forever Foundation

February 20, 2020

Save the date – February 20, 2020

Residents are asked to save the date February 20, 2020 for the Estero Forever Foundation’s Inaugural Celebration to be held at Grandezza Country Club.  Additional details will be provided soon.

A new foundation has been formed to enhance Estero’s positive growth. It’s called the Estero Forever Foundation.

Historic heritage, environmental preservation, recreational facilities and sports fields, and art and cultural centers are just some of the top priorities of the recently established foundation.

This new 501(c)3 organization was recently established with the goal of “forever building a stronger community” in order for Estero to continue to be the best place to live, work, play and visit.

The Foundation envisions the Village of Estero having interconnected parks, trails and other green public spaces, recreational facilities and arts and cultural centers that foster a sense of belonging and creates a sense of place and purpose.  And the Foundation plans to mobilize and distribute the financial resources necessary to meet these community needs.

There are many residents who love the Village of Estero and would be gratified leaving a legacy which would impact those who follow.

A number of Estero volunteers are working together to assure the success of the Foundation’s mission, as well as planning a yearly special celebration event.

Village entities that support the mission and vision of the Foundation include the Village of Estero Council, the Estero Chamber of Commerce, the Estero Council of Community Leaders and Estero not-for-profit organizations.

All community projects supported will be in line with Estero’s Comprehensive Plan and in response to the needs expressed by the community.
