Presenting Sponsor In Education - $10,000+

Suncoast Credit Union has donated over $100,000 to benefit the Hernando County Education Foundation.
The goal of the Suncoast Foundation is to promote the education, health and emotional well-being of children in our communities through scholarships and contributions to public schools, medical research and development, family support organizations, and other charitable programs of direct
benefit to children.
This program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.
The Consortium of Florida Education Foundations has donated $40,611.58 to the Hernando County Education Foundation.
The CFEF’s mission and scope have also grown over time. We have established fundraising opportunities that are used to raise the bar for K-12 development, initiated statewide and regional partnerships and secured State of Florida matching funds for private-sector donations to local education foundations. We also provide professional development opportunities for our members that allow them to share best practices and enhance their expertise in the field of nonprofit management.
We believe in developing future leaders through educational programs, such as Partners in Education for Business Success, to help lead and create positive solutions for local communities. High school and college students also gain health care industry experience while fulfilling educational goals through our partnerships.
​The Mary & Bob Sierra Family Foundation has donated $20,000 in scholarships to students in Hernando County Schools.
