Each year, SRQ Media invites the community to nominate individuals with hearts of giving who have made a significant impact with local nonprofit organizations — from volunteers and board members to individual staff members and donors. This year, attendees were thrilled to be together as we recognized our annual Good Hero Philanthropic Award recipients at the SB2: Philanthropic Agenda Luncheon and Good Hero Philanthropic Awards Luncheon on Thursday, December 9, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota. In the coming weeks, we are happy to feature each of the twelve honorees in our Wednesday Philanthropic edition of SRQ Daily. 

Mark Barnebey is the second Good Hero honoree we are featuring. Mark spent his 35-year career supporting local nonprofits both financially and professionally. He is the Chair of Take Stock in Children of Manatee County, an organization that sends low-income students to college through mentorship and scholarships. And one of his colleagues who nominated him says he is “an unsung hero for so many in our community!”

Mark chairs Just for Girls Foundation and served on the Board of Directors for The Great Outdoors Conservancy, Manatee Performing Arts Center, Realize Bradenton and the City of Bradenton Public Art Committee. Mark gives his time, talent and heart-of-gold to the community he lives in— and loves—and the community is lucky to have him.
