Barron Gift Collier was committed to giving back to the communities in which he lived and did business. Building the first school in Immokalee, FL, in the early 1920s, is one of many examples.
It is a sense of altruistic responsibility carried forward today by the Barron Collier Jr. Foundation. Begun in the 1970s, the foundation makes grants available for education, children’s healthcare, and environmental causes and charities. Barron Collier Companies is proud to give back significantly through the Barron Collier Jr. Foundation, with its focus on supporting local causes in the Southwest Florida community.
