Non-Profit Status

PGICA was granted 501(c)(3)  nonprofit status by the IRS on December 28, 2004. It had been a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization. Donations from December 28, 2004 forward are tax deductible.

This status allows the PGICA to seek grants from other nonprofit organizations--all for the betterment of our community.  The mission of PGICA is to enhance the quality of life in Punta Gorda Isles as a leading waterfront community.  With almost 4,000 members, it is a central information resource for residents and a conduit of their concerns to city and county governments.

The PGICA began in 1962, purchased the building at 1800 W. Marion in 1978, and in September 2005 moved to a new building at Shreve and Magdalina.
