The Giving Coast

Sarasota Manatee Association for Riding Therapy, Inc. (SMART) received a $7290 grant from the Norman and Phyllis Siskel Donor Advised Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. The grant will be used to support SMART’s Warriors in Transition program which is aimed at empowering veterans with an emphasis on leadership, team building, and physical and emotional well-being. 

"We are so grateful for the support of the Warriors in Transition program by the Norman and Phyllis Siskel Donor Advised Fund.  By partnering with our horses, veterans learn to ask for space and set healthy boundaries, lead without force, relax without losing awareness, and rebuild trust.  This generous donation allows SMART to continue to serve the brave men and women of our military” said Melissa Spillenkothen, Acting Executive Director of SMART Inc.
