About The Lakewood Ranch Community Fund of the Manatee Community Foundation: The Lakewood Ranch Community Fund was founded in 2000 based on an idea that to create a true “community,” rather than just a place to live, there needed to be a soul. This charitable organization provides a vehicle in the community for residents, businesses and more to make investments that ensure peoples’ needs across the community are addressed, even if those needs aren’t yet apparent. Its sole purpose has been and continues to be devoted to enhancing the lives of people living in Lakewood Ranch and the surrounding eastern areas of Sarasota and Manatee.
