About Us

Callout PublicationsMessage from the Executive Director,

The Diocese of Florida Foundation exists to support the Diocesan mission and vision and all of its ministries through developing and investing philanthropic resources that will sustain the diocese in perpetuity. Through our Bishop's vision and the leadership of our Board of Directors, the Foundation seeks to build an inspiring case of support for encouraging joyful and generous gifts to advance our ministries of building healthy discipleship and sharing the Good News of God in Christ.

We welcome the opportunity to engage you in fulfilling the Diocesan vision of strengthening relationships—with Jesus Christ and with one another—through our ministries of teaching, healing, feeding, and fellowship. Through this model of servant leadership, we seek to bring hope and transformation to North Florida and beyond.
