The mission of the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office Charitable Foundation, Inc is to assist individual employees of the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office who are experiencing extraordinary personal or family need.
A well-honed granting process ensures that funds are deployed quickly, with the assurance of genuine need and qualification. Given that the Board of Directors of the Foundation have agreed to personally fund the modest administrative costs of running the organization each and every year, 100% of each dollar contributed will go directly to assisting a family in need.
Fund-raising activities will be limited to an annual giving campaign, and a sporting clays tournament each fall.
In the unfortunate situation where an employee of the Sheriff’s Office faces a crisis that is publicly reported, the Foundation will serve as the suggested recipient of donations from the community for the purpose of fulfilling its mission. Such donations are tax-deductible.
