I have been privileged to observe the work of so many community partners – funders, philanthropists, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations, all facilitated by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County – in bringing a two-generational focus to Sarasota’s community investments. My own involvement in the “Two-Gen Task Force” has shed a whole new light on the challenge of ending the generational cycle of poverty.
The sun shines brightly on our coast again, and we are hoping all our friends and nonprofit partners are safe and sound after the wake of Hurricane Irma. While we were spared the worst of the storm, a significant number of emergencies and needs have arisen from the damage, especially for our nonprofit partners and the beneficiaries they serve. We know there will be short- and long-term relief efforts to address the needs that arose from Irma's impact, and the Community Foundation’s Hurricane Irma Relief and Recovery Fund is active and ready to help.
