Your generous donations and enthusiastic support have been instrumental in making a real difference to our wonderful staff.
Our heartfelt thanks to all Sawgrass members and our incredible Sawgrass staff who made our first Sawgrass Foundation Day a rousing success! We have had donations connected with the day totaling nearly $30,000. Thank you very, very much.
To share this success and try and bring more members into our community of supporters, we are working with the Club to hold an Annual Foundation Day to provide a focused time where everyone who wishes can learn more about what we do, who we are assisting and how you can help.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 25 and plan to engage in your favorite activities at the club on this day.
There are 22 staff or staff family members presently scheduled for scholarships in the coming semester and have recently supported 5 staff members in specific cases of hardship.
You should know that this summer we began direct assistance to cases of hardship. We have already assisted with medical expenses in several cases where insurance limits have been exceeded.
Our scholarships to the staff are a very positively received benefit. We are planning to support 15 employees, or their immediate dependents in the autumn semester. Thank you for your generosity allowing this to happen.
We have 12 students scheduled for Spring/Summer classes and expect this to grow in the Fall.
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.
