Our Mission & Goals

The Daniel R. and Anne M. Harper Foundation was established in 2000 with the express purpose of continuing the philanthropic work of the Harper family. Daniel and Anne Harper moved to Fort Meyers, Florida in 1951. Since that time the Harper family has been active in and given generously to a number of charitable, religious, scientific and educational organizations. Anne Harper passed away in 2008.

The Foundation’s goals harmonize perfectly with the altruistic agenda that has governed the Harper family for more than a half century.

Taking as its motto, “Building a Future Together,” the Foundation’s mission is to support community and civic organizations working in the following areas of interest:

  • Illness & Disease
  • Advancement of Science
  • Education
  • Youth Development
  • Religious Organization
  • Economically Disadvantaged Communities
