CFSC Donors Issue Grants Supporting Animal Welfare, Health Care, School Readiness, and Summer Education

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY JUL 1, 2020

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County, alongside its donors, has granted more than $867,400 to nearly 40 local nonprofit organizations in support of programs addressing animal welfare, health care, school readiness, and summer learning. These grants will provide support to strengthen nonprofit capacity, address evolving needs, and assist missions to serve those vulnerable populations who have been disproportionately impacted in the wake of the recent crises.

While previously planned, grants awarded in this cycle provide support needed to cause-driven organizations to address issues revealed by or due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Adaptability and innovation are essential to our nonprofit partners as they face evolving needs within our community,” says Kirsten Russell, Vice President of Community Impact at the Community Foundation. “While philanthropy is one part of the overall solution, foundations and donors will continue to support innovative approaches that build resiliency and lead to recovery. We should be encouraged by what we see from these grantees and many others as they pivot to address community needs, even in the face of ongoing uncertainty.”
