    SCCF - Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation

    Sanibel Real Estate

    SCCF is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the conservation of coastal habitats and aquatic resources on Sanibel and Captiva and in the surrounding watershed. On November 1st, 2017 SCCF was awarded the highest possible rating on Charity Navigator verifying that SCCF exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in their scope of work. Join us in supporting SCCF and congratulations to a well run organization.

    How did SCCF form and why? In the late 1950s when developments were exploding in most Florida coastal areas, Lee County set the density for Sanibel Island at 35,000 units. However the islands were hard to reach due to the lack of a causeway and lack of large amounts of drinkable water. That changed in 1963 with the building of the Sanibel Causeway and in 1966 with the creation of steady supply of drinking water produced by the Island Water Association.

    Churches and Religious Organizations

    Sanibel Real Estate

    Sanibel and Captiva are home to several Churches and while the islands population does not support enough members to represent every denomination, there are many options for visitors and residents.

    Because our community is small (6,000 year around residents) the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ shares their facilities with Temple Bat Yam.
