While widely known as a luxury developer and builder, the company also maintains a reputation for philanthropic leadership, sound stewardship and community commitment. The Lutgert Companies contribute resources to numerous charities in the region covering a range of needs: healthcare, the underprivileged, arts and education.
The company has been a longtime supporter of the Naples Children & Education Foundation, which is responsible for organizing the Naples Winter Wine Festival, a charity wine auction that has raised nearly $245 million to benefit underprivileged children. Committed to enriching the lives of others, The Lutgert Companies helped establish a comprehensive cancer center for the NCH Healthcare System. The College of Business at Florida Gulf Coast University was also renamed in recognition of a gift from the family.
