Being Part of Our Community

BrandStory

Being a part of our community is in our DNA, and while the pandemic may have prevented us from getting together, it couldn’t stop us from giving back. This year, more families than ever needed assistance with putting food on the table. To help, we donated $275,000 to area food banks by engaging with our members and community, including nearly $90,000 to All Faiths Food Bank in Sarasota and The Salvation Army in Bradenton. Traditionally, the Achieva Foundation’s fundraisers support classroom grants administered by the Education Foundation of Sarasota County. We couldn’t hold fundraisers this year, but our Foundation board of directors elected to continue our support of the classroom grant program with a $25,000 donation in a time when teachers need assistance more than ever. We also helped make sure families in our community had a bright holiday season, no matter what challenges they faced. We hosted a number of Salvation Army Angel Trees in our branches – a program that provided more than 1,400 gifts, including bicycles, to nearly 500 children across our community.
