Donate to the Cause

In the past 24 years, the Emerald Coast Foundation has exceeded $2,000,000 in donations, in support of various local youth orientated organizations. Your dollars have helped keep the doors open for facilities that help local kids in need.

What better way to invest in your own community than “Investing in Youth”?



The strength of the Emerald Coast Foundation is its ability to achieve its mission: ECF is committed to “Investing in Youth” in Northwest Florida. This capacity is encapsulated in a number of fund raising activities that take place throughout the calendar year. The largest is the Emerald Coast Poker Run, held annually in August.

This tremendous event, hosted by ECF, is one of the largest boat poker runs in the country. The Emerald Coast Foundation is the only not-for-profit organization that puts forth such effort, for the sole purpose of expanding its charitable reward and helping our most precious resource: the children of our community.

Throughout the year we depend on local support to accomplish our calendar of events. Through sponsorships from individuals, businesses, and large corporations, the Emerald Coast Foundation is able to bring together many levels of support, and that’s where you can help. By supporting ECF, you can directly help the youth organizations in Northwest Florida provide much needed services.
