Community Involvement

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.

Over the past five decades, Raymond L. Lutgert and The Lutgert Companies have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to making Southwest Florida the kind of community he envisioned through an endless variety of affiliations and charitable sponsorships. It is with heartfelt pride that The Lutgert Companies continues its support of the organizations that make Southwest Florida the kind of place its people are proud to call home.
