I am pleased to welcome you to The Florida Philanthropy Blog, the official blog for Florida Philanthropic Network, a statewide association of grantmakers working to build philanthropy to build a better Florida. The Florida Philanthropy Blog will cover news, information and opinion on charitable giving in the Sunshine State. We intend for the blog to be a central source for in-depth discussion and analysis of key issues, trends and ideas on Florida philanthropy.
The Florida Philanthropy Blog will be written by the staff of Florida Philanthropic Network. We also plan to periodically invite guest bloggers to contribute posts, to bring in the voices of our members, volunteers and community partners.
The Florida Philanthropy Blog will keep you up to date on what’s happening with FPN, our members and the broader philanthropy sector in Florida. But much more than that, I hope that this blog will spark new thinking, provoke new ideas and inspire new action – in short, to be a vibrant online space that will contribute to FPN’s efforts to strengthen Florida philanthropy and improve the well-being of our state’s residents and communities.
I encourage you to follow our blog and join in the conversation. Here’s wishing you a safe and happy holiday season.
– David Biemesderfer, President & CEO, Florida Philanthropic Network
