Background Discussion
  • Manatee Community Foundation serves as a community partner with Manatee County through their mission of philanthropy.
  • Each year they establish priorities of community engagement and use their venue, website, public engagement, and social media to engage and educate the citizens of Manatee County and to provide a venue for collaboration.
