THE FOUNDATION | August 2019
Show Your Support for the Arts
Inspires us…fosters creativity…builds bridges between cultures…those are just some of the reasons companies like Orlando Health are sponsoring the 23rd Annual Arts Alive in Seminole! Research confirms that art experiences positively and significantly impact academic and social development.

Supporting this event is one way companies can directly showcase their business while raising funds for the performing and visual arts in every Seminole County Public School. Sponsorships are still available and live or silent auction donations are being accepted. The event will also feature a star-studded show with amazing entertainment by some of the most talented students in the district. 

Back to School Backpacks for Success
The Ryan Foundation donated $17,500 to support our Tools 4 Seminole Schools' Backpacks for Success program. This initiative provides backpacks and school supplies to students in need every August. This year, with the help of community volunteers, we delivered 3,500 new backpacks filled with supplies to every Seminole County Public School.
