The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY OCT 5, 2020

After the COVID-19 pandemic arrived, Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center sought a seamless transition from one-to-one personal instruction to remote learning for individuals with vision loss. Funding in the amount of $9,839 was provided by the Harold E. and Ruth M. Niles Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for technology improvements. “We are extremely grateful to the Harold E. and Ruth M. Niles Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, which provided this Community Impact Grant to the Lighthouse to upgrade our technology for remote learning,” said Lisa J. Howard, CEO. “This funding allows the Lighthouse to continue its vital services to those who need us most, especially while we navigate through this unprecedented time. For some of our clients, this was their first time going online.”
