Circle of Champions

The Circle of Champions is a committed group of Education Foundation of Sarasota County donors who provide annual gifts of $1,000 or more to support our mission—to enhance the potential of students, promote excellence in teaching, and inspire innovation in education, guided by strategic philanthropy. We work to inspire students early in their K – 12 journey and empower them to get ready as they pursue their passions. We want each and every student to graduate with a plan for life after high school, prepared to succeed. Thank you to all our current Champions, view the full list here.
