Shumaker Supports Community as Part of Its Literacy Campaign; Gifts Boys and Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties Funds for Great Futures Academy Initiatives

The Giving Coast

The national law firm Shumaker has proudly donated $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties (BGCSDC) in support of the organization’s Great Futures Academy (GFA) initiatives. This contribution is a part of Shumakers recently launched Make a Difference through Literacy Initiative supporting the firm’s ongoing commitment to literacy and community engagement as it nears a century of dedicated legal service in 2025. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties are committed to enabling all young people, especially those in need, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The GFA program provides intensive out-of-school instruction for Club members, ages 6-12, in key subjects like Reading, Math, and Science through a school-year
program aimed at helping Club members achieve grade-level benchmarks and on-time grade advancement, as well as a summer program designed to prevent learning loss while youth are out of school. The program also provides Club members with homework help, tutoring, educational activities, and project-based learning. Shumaker’s Make a Difference through Literacy Initiative is dedicated to transforming the lives of individuals through the power of words. Committed to fostering positive change, Shumaker aims to improve literacy for more than 100,000 individuals by 2025 as part of the firm’s centennial celebration.
