In response to the impact of the coronavirus on nonprofits serving people in Lakewood Ranch and east Manatee and Sarasota counties, the Lakewood Ranch Community Fund will award funds totaling $150,000 supporting relief and recovery.
“With the magnitude of our current situation, getting money into the community outside of our typical funding cycle is important to us. We know these dollars will have a direct impact on the lives of people who need assistance at this time,” said Garrett Shinn, president of the Fund’s board of advisors.
Tidewell Hospice and Manatee Family YMCA (Lakewood Ranch Branch) will each receive a $10,000 grant; Florida Cancer Specialists will receive a $5,000 grant; Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida will receive a $3,600 grant; and Southeastern Guide Dogs and Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue will each receive a $1,000 grant.
