SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY SEP 30, 2020

Generous funding provided by Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation has fulfilled the $200,000 grant match requirement for a pilot solar investment program spearheaded by an anonymous donor with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. The cross-foundational support ensures local nonprofit organizations have access to energy alternatives and sustainable practices while navigating heightened needs and shifting organizational capacity to serve brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Caring for our environment is one of those unique causes that can unite donors and funders who want to impact the present while also sharing a vision for the future,” says Roxie Jerde, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. “As our community develops actionable solutions to the climate challenges facing our current and future generations, we are proud to stand alongside our visionary donor and local foundation partners in expanding energy alternatives for a more sustainable future.”
