Students: A Foundation for Our Future

An investment in education is an investment in our community's future.

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County believes that all who wish to further their education and increase future potential for success should have an equal chance to take advantage of the opportunities available to them.

This is why we have a scholarship program that helps hundreds of students - high school seniors and adult learners - go to college or a trade or technical school. With the support and passion of our donors, we are able to award over $1.85 million in scholarships each year.
