Who we are


The vision of the Estero Forever Foundation is the continual development of a community that embraces its historic heritage, protects the environment and builds strong neighborhoods.  


The mission of the Estero Forever Foundation is to mobilize financial resources for the fulfillment of our vision by encouraging and facilitating generosity.

  • Legacy – We believe everyone should leave a legacy of impact for those who follow.
  • Generosity – We believe in giving back to our community.
  • Excellence – We believe our community should be the best place to live, work, worship, play and visit.
