We work hand-in-hand with our neighbors to build a strong and caringCelebration Foundation picture Central Florida community.

Our Team

The Celebration Foundation was founded in 1996. We promote community engagement and are committed to human services, education and the arts. Though the Foundation has a small staff, a dedicated Board of Trustees and committed volunteers make it possible for the Foundation to engage in the programs and initiatives we promote.

The Celebration Foundation is made up of a results-oriented group of Celebration and Osceola County neighbors that identifies the needs in the community and takes action to address them. Through a variety of volunteer, civic and community betterment programs the Celebration Foundation promotes a sense of belonging and nurtures a strong spirit of service.

We welcome all contributions, whether they be financial or by volunteering your time.

The Celebration Foundation is a non-profit with 501(c)(3) status. To maintain our status, we have philanthropic obligations within Celebration and greater Osceola County. The Board of Trustees and staff of the Celebration Foundation take its fiscal responsibility seriously and are good stewards of donated funds. The Foundation also maintains a CFFoundation Reviewed status with the Central Florida Foundation.

Feel free to contact our staff for any assistance.
