The Sanibel School

The Sanctuary Golf Club Foundation board approved donating a total of $48,000 to The Sanibel School and to the islands’ preschool, The Children’s Education Center of the Islands (CECI), in an effort to fill funding needs created, as a result of the COVID crisis. This brings The Sanctuary Golf Club Foundation’s total donations in our community to $133,000 since the pandemic began. In March, the foundation provided a total of $85,000 to F.I.S.H. and Community Housing and Resources (CHR).

In this latest round of grant making, The Sanibel School received $20,000; $10,000 of which will allow the school to reinstate the “The Leader in Me” program and the remaining $10,000 will go toward replenishing books and other media in the school’s library, The Sanctuary Media Center. “The Leader in Me” program, which is offered by the Franklin Covey Institute and will be offered to all K-8 students, helps instill essential character and life skills.

Supporting the educational needs of children and helping families who are among the hardest hit during this time seemed particularly pressing to The Sanctuary Golf Club Foundation’s Grant Committee. Lisa Schmidlin, SGCF Board Member explained, “Ensuring we have safe and affordable daycare on our island, regardless of ability to pay, is essential for parents to be able to return back to work. We’re happy we can help make it easier for island families, and for all of us, to recover.”
