Civic Innovation

The Carl Angus DeSantis Foundation understands the importance of building vibrant and sustainable communities.

We support community efforts that help cities transform their public spaces into vital places that highlight local assets, spur rejuvenation, and serve common needs. The Foundation will invest in unique projects that add beauty and vitality to our local communities. We also invest in innovative civic programs that improve our community.

Examples include, but are not limited to, unique crime prevention strategies, after school tutoring, affordable housing initiatives, college preparation, job creation, beautification efforts and economic development.

We believe in the power of communities to transform lives and stand ready to assist the next generation of civic leaders as they build our community.

More to come because we’ve only just begun.
