Donate to the COVID-19 Education Relief Fund

The Education Foundation of Sarasota County has swiftly adapted its delivery methods so that we can continue to support the students, teachers and schools in Sarasota County during the COVID-19 crisis. Our WHY and our WHAT have not changed or paused. We are adapting our HOW to ensure that we keep doing what we do best but in different ways that allow us to effectively rise to the COVID-19 challenges that have forced school closures and disrupted student learning, community and family life.

Giving to the COVID-19 Education Relief Fund supports virtual advising, virtual mentoring, or the emergency support fund for students and teacher funding.

Supporting the COVID-19 Education Relief Fund provides virtual college-career advising; virtual mentoring; and other virtual replications of services at our campus-based Student Success Centers; and, through social media and digital platforms, providing valuable social-emotional resource and info hub for families and teachers who need encouragement to help themselves and their students navigate new stresses.

We need the support of our generous community to help us provide teachers, students and families with consistent resources and support services by utilizing virtual advising and virtual mentoring. Below are two different ways to donate.
