2016 giving challenge results

We could not have done it without your support!



The Foundation participated in the 2016 Giving Challenge of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. With the generous help and support of our donors and friends, the Foundation exceeded its fundraising goal by 25 percent raising almost $13,000. The funds raised in 2016 were committed to provide paid internships for Booker high school students with local employers.  

These internships provide on the-job training and transformational learning experiences.

Please help us provide additional student internships again this year by contributing to the 24 hour online Giving Challenge from 12 noon May 1 to 12 noon May 2, 2018. The students will 'thank you'.  

Please check back for the live link to place your donation on the morning of May 1st.
