The Theodore Roosevelt Gibson Memorial Fund, Inc. (TRGMF) was formed and incorporated in 1983 to unify and bridge gaps between diverse groups within the local Coconut Grove, greater Miami-Dade and South Florida communities.

Gibson, the first black commissioners in the City of Miami and a well-recognized and outstanding civil rights leader in the 1960’s.
The TRGMF offers services in the following areas:
- Community Services (Coconut Grove Historical Museum)
