About the Foundation

The Kantner Foundation Inc., was established in 1987 by Woodrow A. Kantner, self-made real estate developer/investor from Martin County, Florida, to carry out his twin objectives of (i) providing scholarships to like-minded high school students from the local community, and (ii) advancing the free enterprise system and community-based philanthropy.

Over the past 26 years, hundreds of scholarships have been awarded to outstanding students that have demonstrated high potential for future success and have met the qualifications set by the Foundation. To date the Foundation has distributed millions of dollars in the form of scholarships and grants to not-for-profit organizations in Palm Beach & Martin Counties.

  • “ There is nothing more important than the education of our young people.”
