VOLUNTEERS - 2018-2020

Our work is possible only because of the amazing people who make up Plantation Community Foundation:  our Board of Directors and Grant Committee; our donors and members who generously give of their time, treasure and talent; and our staff.  They selflessly give so that we can continue awarding grants to South Sarasota County nonprofit agencies through our Grant Awards Program. To our volunteers a heartfelt "THANK YOU".

Impact Grant


      The PCF was able to award 2 Community Impact Grants in 2019.

      $26,000 was awarded to InStride Therapy to start a new therapeutic program for veterans suffering from PTSD and related conditions.     

     $48,000 was awarded to the Senior Friendship Center in Venice to fully upgrade two of their client lavatories.   


     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.  


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 launch 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. 


Members of Plantation Community Foundation celebrate, with volunteers and the Executive Director of the Englewood Community Care Clinic, Inc., the Community "Impact Grant" which is funding a complete new laboratory.



Plantation Community Foundation's partnership with Gulf Coast Community Foundation provided funding for two new STEMsmart (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) classrooms in Venice Middle School.
