Avenues of Services
Our employees, lovingly referred to as partners, impact the lives of our residents every day. Because of the generosity of our donors, we are able to fund innovative ways to support those whom we care so much about.
For some of our partners and their dependents being able to attend college is a dream. A dream that Moorings Park residents can make into a reality through the Moorings Park Foundation Scholarship Program. The Scholarship Committee, which is comprised of residents from all three campuses, carefully reviews the applications and selects who will receive a scholarship.
Partners may apply if they have worked full-time or part-time for Moorings Park for at least a year. Household dependents and spouses may also apply. Scholarship applications open in early November and typically close the first week of February. Please visit the Community Foundation of Collier County website (cfccollier.org) for all application questions and requirements.
We would like to thank our residents for investing in the education of our partners and their families. If you have not made a donation and would like to do so, please click here.
Each year, your Foundation matches state funding for eligible Moorings Park employees who need assistance with child care expenses.
Through the School Readiness Program, administered by the Early Learning Coalition of SW Florida, childcare is provided through private, early childhood programs, family child care homes and school-based sites operated by public schools. This helps parents have access to high quality programs designed to meet the individual needs of their children.
Eligibility depends on participants’ household size and income. Partners could receive help with 35-40% of their childcare costs. In Collier County, one of the highest expenses other than housing is childcare. For some of our partners, taking advantage of this benefit is the difference between having to work longer hours, keeping them away from their children. The application process is handled through our HR department.

Over the last six years, Southwest Florida has experienced several once in a lifetime events. These unforeseen challenges increased the financial burden for our partners.
Because of the generosity of so many Moorings Park residents, we faced these challenges together, and were able to assist our partners when they needed us the most. In collaboration with the Collier Community Foundation, the Moorings Park Assistance Relief Fund was established to confront unmet need. This fund, along with other initiatives, exemplifies the kindness, love and support our partners receive. Critical times when support was needed includes:
- 2017 – Hurricane Irma devastated our community and cause wide-spread damage.
- 2020 – COVID-19 resulted in financial hardships for partners and their family’s due to employment, isolation, loneliness and even loss of family.
- 2022 – Hurricane Ian destroyed homes, making them unlivable due to extreme flooding which displaced many of our partners.
