The Community Foundation of Sarasota County has been identified as a national leader among community foundations according to an independent third-party that evaluates philanthropic funders for effectiveness. The Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) ranked CFSC in the top 99th percentile for overall donor satisfaction and impact on the community after conducting a 2019 Donor Perception Report that compared local results with CEP’s broad dataset of nearly 10,000 donors from more than 70 community foundations across the United States. “While we are tremendously proud of these results, what these numbers ultimately reflect is the generosity of our community and our commitment to community impact,” said Roxie Jerde, President & CEO of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. “These numbers represent the passions of the donors making a difference every day in the lives of families and individuals.
