PNC has awarded $150,000 to the Education Foundation of Sarasota County in partnership with Forty Carrots Family Center designed to improve the school success of young children in Sarasota County Title One elementary schools. The three-year grant will expand the Partners In Play program to Gocio Elementary School and allow Forty Carrots to offer Abriendo Puertas Bilingual Parenting Education (Parent University) at Gocio and Alta Vista Elementary Schools. As an independent philanthropic supporter of Sarasota County Schools, the Education Foundation strives to connect other youth-serving organizations such as Forty Carrots Family Center with Sarasota County Schools to address specific and identifiable needs. Together these organizations have created a collective impact model program designed to serve children as well as their parents and families and is built around programs that have proven successful.
