Given to the Education Foundation via the Giving Challenge before? Great! Thank you. This time, your donation up to $100 doubles. Last year, thanks to your generosity we exceeded our goal with a 684% increase over 2014!
What is your donation supporting? Our first ever, #SRQHacks Hackathon on October 14-16, 2016! This technology and innovation initiative will help bridge the technology gap for underserved students by connecting them with talented mentors from the top technology, design, and business companies in our community. The challenge involves the students along with their mentor, creating an app or website that addresses a community issue. Through your support and generosity, we are able to continue our commitment in providing technology and innovative opportunities for all students, such as the #SRQHacks Hackathon.
We invite you and your friends to join us in supporting our children and their future. Share this with your family and friends! We believe an investment in a child’s education is the best investment anyone can make. Make a difference in a child’s life and choose to support the Education Foundation of Sarasota County.
We thank YOU for choosing to #BeTheOne!
