A History of Philanthropy

Over the years, Collier Enterprises has donated and made land available to maintain the environmental and economic health of our region. Examples include the north campus of Naples Community Hospital, the Isabel Collier Read Healthpark in Immokalee, and a portion of the site of the Naples Botanical Garden. These contributions are consistent with a long tradition of environmental stewardship by the Collier family, which has been instrumental in the creation of the Big Cypress National Preserve, the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, and the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.

In addition to land, Collier Enterprises has made significant financial contributions to a long list of area organizations and non-profits that work tirelessly to offer assistance and support to our community.

Just a few of the organizations include:

  • Champions for Learning (previously the Collier County Education Foundation)
  • Florida Family Literacy Initiative
  • The Immokalee Foundation
  • Friends of Rookery Bay
  • Naples Winter Wine Festival, supporting the Naples Children & Education Foundation
  • PGA’s First Tee
