To honor Lori White’s last 40 days in office, the Education Foundation of Sarasota County LAUNCHES #40FOR40, 40 days of giving to honor 40 years of service.

Join us in reaching our goal of raising $150,000 by March 1, 2017 for the Lori White Endowment Fund, established to ensure teacher excellence in Sarasota County. The Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation has generously agreed to strengthen your giving by providing a capping grant of $50,000 upon reaching our goal.

Your gift will honor Lori White’s legacy and support Sarasota County teachers! Teachers impact student achievement more than any other school-related factor. Sparking a love of learning by offering innovation in and beyond the classroom starts with empowering teachers. The Lori White Endowment Fund will help educators throughout our community explore professional development opportunities and unlock their student’s potential for generations to come.

“When children from all walks of life have access to innovative opportunities beyond the classroom, they begin to view their future in a new light.”—Superintendent Lori White
