This is the time of year when many of us think about charity. We wanted to ask that you consider directing a portion of your generosity to the Sawgrass Foundation.
We hope you had a wonderful Holiday weekend! The year is half over, and we are, more or less, out of the pandemic doldrums. And the Foundation is now in the second year of operations – helping our staff achieve their academic dreams.
We have 10 approved scholars at present and should have a total of 13 for the Fall semester. We expect more to apply as the program expands. Thank you for your generosity, which makes all this possible.
We expect about 10 scholarships for the next semester and more in the Summer and Autumn terms.
We all love the Club, but it would be an empty shell without the staff to make it fun and enjoyable. So please celebrate them this Labor Day.
We already have 7 employees with applications in process. We expect more in the Fall. Please help us have enough funds to make this happen.
A resounding thank you to the more than 250 members who, in the short 2 and ½ months of our existence, have opened their hearts and their purses to our charity, donating over $70,000 and more still coming in.
Over 225 Members have contributed thus far to our Foundation, and over $28,000 are being disbursed for crisis relief. Your generosity has been amazing allowing us to collect these funds and distribute them in only about 5 weeks time.
Thank you all for the great response we have already received for our Foundation to help the employees of SGCC.
When asked about the Sawgrass Experience and what makes this place special to each of us, the consistent answer we receive is the staff.
