The Power of Philanthropy at The Village Shops!

The Village Shops on Venetian Bay is dedicated to giving back to the community by hosting a number of events and givebacks throughout the year to benefit local nonprofit organizations. Philanthropy is of utmost importance as is the social responsibility to partake in community outreach programs and build longstanding partnerships.

The Village Shops partners with organizations whose sole mission is to better the lives of children and animals in Collier County and raise awareness for the arts, education, and more! By giving back, The Village is able to support projects and endeavors, which directly benefit the Naples community.

As a whole, The Village contributes tens of thousands of dollars to local charities each year. The community partners who benefit from the many events and initiatives include, but are not limited to, the following organizations:
