Imagine Solutions, founded in 2008 as a public foundation in Naples, Florida, is supported by 23 philanthropic families from Southwest
Florida. Its mission is to bring forward groundbreaking ideas addressing critical issues to an audience capable of making a substantial impact.
Over the course of 13 years, Imagine Solutions has hosted more than 500 world-class thought leaders and change-makers, covering diverse topics including healthcare, education, science and technology, military leadership, the arts, finance, conservation, and more. One loyal attendee aptly described it as “an extraordinary learning experience on steroids.”
The organization’s flagship event is an annual one-day forum featuring 20-plus distinguished experts engaging with an audience of 650 active and curious participants. The event is sponsored by major institutions such as Northern Trust, FGCU, NCH, Moorings Park, Lee Health, Wilson & Johnson, FPL, CVB, HHMI, and national sponsors like AARP, IBM, and Exxon Mobil. In addition, it conducts three one-night seminars, each focusing on a pressing societal issue and featuring a single speaker before an audience of 200.
Imagine Solutions has had the honor of hosting distinguished speakers, including generals, NASA scientists, renowned academics, and top executives from prominent healthcare and educational organizations. Our focus remains apolitical. Notable figures have included experts from The Smithsonian Institution, The Nature Conservancy, The Library of Congress, Sesame Street, the RAND Corporation, The National Geographic Society, and the National Park Service.
In addition, Imagine Solutions actively contributes to the community by offering scholarships to nonprofit leaders and launched the “Virtual Learning for Teachers” program. Furthermore, it leverages its platform to impact the national stage with Big Ideas.
With a global perspective, a national focus, and the capacity to implement solutions at the local level, Imagine Solutions bridges the gap between learning and leadership, driving positive change in both its local community and the broader world.
