Impact Grant


     The 2018 Impact Grant was awarded to Literacy Volunteers of South Sarasota County.  President Bob Hayden and the Impact Grant Committee presented the grant check to Joe Pokorney, LVSSC President, and Claudia Daniels, grant writer and Board Member.   

     The award of $19,271, will be used to fund a Study-Lab Program located in the Family Services Center, North Port, FL.  This location brings together a variety of social service agencies that provide assistance to those who need it.

     A dedicated study-lab will provide a safe and welcoming space for students to meet with tutors, utilize computer equipment, and attend classes.  The number of students has increased 73% from 2010 to 2017.  LVSSC has helped 343 students from 48 different countries in 2016/2017.


The 2017 Impact Grant awarded to Habitat for Humanity South Sarasota County is presented to Aimee Holmes, Chief Develpment Officer.   

The Foundation has generously partnered with Habitat to lauch a new home revitalization program, A Brush with Kindness. The award of $16,000, along with paint donated by Sherwin Williams, will be used to paint one home per month for a qualified homeowner.  This is a one-year program that will benefit income-qualified homewoners in need. It is Habitat's intent to help South Sarasota's most vulnerable population revitalize their homes with pride and dignity. 


The Englewood Community Care Clinic, Inc. dedicated the beginning of its compact new laboratory to the Plantation Community Foundation.  Members of the Foundation's Impact Grant Committee, Foundation Board Members, Clinic volunteers and the Executive Director attended a ribbon cutting ceremony.  The Clinic plans to add equipment to its lab with the remaining $12,000 in funds from the grant.
