What is The Art of Giving?


Trinity-by-the-Cove Episcopal Church

For the past 36 years Trinity-by-the-Cove has been raising money through The Archangel Fund for Collier County Charities. Over the years the fundraising events have evolved and been renamed. Our name, The Art of Giving, was chosen to reflect the purpose of our fundraising events and to promote the understanding that generosity to those less fortunate rewards the human spirit and enriches our life.

This year Hurricane Irma sent a severe blow to our community and we approach our annual fundraising event with a renewed intensity and sense of purpose in order to raise funds to assist our neighbors and the local charities who exist to assist those in need.

Each year, 100% of the net proceeds raised by The Art of Giving remain in Collier County and our Grants Commission has an extensive process to review applications from local charities, including follow-up to ensure that funds are used appropriately. Our focus this year will be Physical Health and Development. Past recipients:

  • Baby Basics
  • Naples Equestrian Challenge
  • Neighborhood Health Clinic
  • Lighthouse of Collier, Inc.
