About The Art of Giving

The Art of Giving is our fundraising event that promotes the understanding that generosity to those less fortunate nourishes the human spirit, enriches our lives, and transforms our community.  For decades Trinity-by-the-Cove has been raising money for Collier County Charities. Each year 100% of the net proceeds raised by the Art of Giving remain in Collier County; 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 & Development, awarding grants to charities such as Baby Basics, Neighborhood Health Clinic, Parkinson Association of SWFL, Healthcare Network, Naples Therapeutic Riding Center and NCH Safe and Healthy Children.

Connecting your Love and Care to Local Charities

This year the charities we support address a wide range of needs for Physical Health & Development. The Grants Commission is already convened and ready to begin their ministry in the fall.  You will hear stories from them about the needs in our community and how you are reaching your arms of love out into Collier County by sponsoring the 2024 event.

You have made a big difference and your generosity will never be forgotten. These past years have been difficult with Covid-19 pandemic and Hurricane Ian, and we continue to work to meet the needs in our community.  Your help given to the most vulnerable will be lifesaving.  Your support for your neighbors in need in Collier County will help save lives and ease the burden that many face and save lives.

Broad Reach

There are numerous charitable causes in Collier County. By sponsoring The Art of Giving your charitable dollar has a broad reach. The grant process will review applications from at least a dozen charities with parishioner teams visiting and interviewing each charity. The charities in this year’s cycle will provide much needed services to people with physical and developmental needs.

Prudent Stewardship

Our event is intimate and engaging, and our good work in the community is making a difference. The Art of Giving series incurs no administrative cost—that is provided by Trinity-by-the-Cove.  By celebrating on our Port Royal campus and waterfront, we keep our expenses down while offering an elegant evening of music and fellowship.
