A Founder’s Legacy: The Yvonne Bixby Fund

A well-known and respected business woman, Yvonne Bixby shared the vision of establishing the Community Foundation in the early 1980s with other Brevard community leaders. She served as a founding board member, and as President and Chairman of the Board.

Yvonne gave a lifetime of service to Brevard’s community and civic organizations, including the South Brevard Chamber of Commerce, Keep Brevard Beautiful, and more. The Community Foundation for Brevard honors her legacy today by stewarding the Yvonne Bixby Fund, a proactive and responsive unrestricted fund serving Brevard nonprofits through the Foundation’s annual competitive grant program. Like Yvonne’s enduring commitment to our community, her planned gift to the Community Foundation for Brevard will have meaning and impact for countless years to come.
