Mission of The Founders Fund, Inc.

The Founders Fund, Inc. of The Club Pelican Bay has stayed true to its mission, for the past 21 years, to provide financial assistance to young men and women from Collier County in their pursuit of post high school education and training. Over 2.8 million dollars have been awarded to over 500 local students from 11 Collier County high schools who have demonstrated both the need and the outstanding merit required to receive the scholarship award from The Founders Fund.

The Founders Fund was created in 1991 by the Golf Members of The Club Pelican Bay, a private golf club, and is classified by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization.

The Founders Fund, Inc. is supported by Golf and Social Members of The Club, as well as many corporate sponsors which include prominent local and national businesses. Individuals and businesses in support of the cause now have the opportunity to back Sponsored Scholars. Fundraising activities support annual scholarship grants of approximately $200,000 per year. Since its inception, fund scholarship awards have totaled more than $2.8 million dollars.
