A DONOR’S STORY     The Lasting Legacy of a Husband and Father   “A Donor Gives Back: The Fund for Children and Families”    

“Monika Jennings knows that when giving mirrors who you are, it feels good and makes a difference. That’s why she chose Cape Coral Community Foundation to help her make a positive impact in the lives of children and families.”  

When Monika Jennings speaks about her husband Matt, her face lights up. She tells of his intense love for fishing, boating and golfing, and his passion for helping young people. And, as wives do, she treasures the times she and Matt worked and traveled abroad, creating a lifetime of shared memories.  

When Monika was looking for a distinctive way to honor Matt, she chose to create the Matthew Jennings Memorial Fund at the Cape Coral Community Foundation.   The local expertise that the Cape Coral Community Foundation provides is important to Monika. The Cape Coral Community Foundation introduces Monika Jennings to unique programs that combine Matt’s passion for boating, fishing and golfing with his love for kids. It gives Monika great pride to make a difference in the lives of others, all while celebrating her husband.  

This year, the Matthew Jennings Memorial Fund will contribute funds to charities helping children and families. These funds will have an immediate impact on children in our community that will give them stability and unique educational opportunities.   

We are honored to have Monika Jennings as a Community Philanthropist, partnering with the Cape Coral Community Foundation as her giving partner. Her commitment to Cape Coral will make a difference in Matt’s honor … For Good. For Ever.   

When a loved one passes away, many families and friends wish to create a lasting legacy in honor of his or her life. Making the decision of which charity or charities should receive donations can be daunting during the time of loss. A memorial endowment at the Cape Coral Community Foundation gives you time to consider how best to represent your loved one’s passions and interests.
