“The Generous Cape Reception will be the first of many events that will empower individuals from our region to take an active role in philanthropy,” said Cape Coral Community Foundation CEO, Michael Chatman.
“My goal is to share how our Global Center for Generosity is a valuable resource for Cape Coral and Southwest Florida as a whole, and inspire attendees to realize the full potential of our mission.”
