THE FOUNDATION | February 2021
Swing it FORE Education
Our annual Golf FORE Education Tournament presented by Insurance Office of America is set for March 22nd. Sponsorships are still available for this SOLD OUT tournament that has supported Seminole County Public Schools for over 25 years.
If you can't swing a sponsorship, you can still show your support to help us make the day a hole-in-one!
We're looking for donations such as dining gift cards, unique experiences, retail gift cards, golf equipment, weekend getaways, wine, liquor, and gift baskets. These items will be used to raise nessecary funds the day of the tournament to help reach our goals. Donate today!

From playing, sponsoring, and donating player gifts, there are many ways to make a difference for students and teachers of SCPS.
Share the LOVE with SCPS Students
February is LOVE of Reading month so let's share the LOVE with SCPS students by supporting the Tools 4 Seminole Schools Online Book Drive!
Help us stock the shelves of our library. Your book donations will help SCPS students discover new books, favorite characters, complete series, and more! Use Scholastic's fun online shopping site to purchase books for T4SS before February 23rd.
Not sure what to buy? You can make a donation and we'll then use those funds to purchase books students LOVE using our Scholastic discount.
Arts are Alive in Schools
Foundation Board and Committee Members have had the pleasure of visiting SCPS schools to award them with checks to support their visual and performing arts programs. The Foundation committed $100,000 to support the arts within Seminole County Public Schools.

“These funds ensure each school can provide high-quality art curriculum to all students, even in a pandemic” said Jean Vansmith, Foundation executive director. “We’re thankful our community rises up to support the arts through Arts Alive, including great partners like Orlando Health South Seminole Hospital, Duke Energy, and Wharton Smith.

This all wouldn’t be possible with the generosity of our Arts Alive sponsors, donors, committee and the business community. The Foundation is proud to support our school's art programs as well as a number of district initiatives!
Our TSIC Senior is a Leader 4 Life
Congrats to Esther Destiny Ukachukwu! This outstanding Take Stock in Children senior from Seminole High School is a winner of the Leaders 4 Fellowship 2021! We’re so proud of Destiny and all her achievements!
As a winner, she'll receive a MacBook pro, funds for housing, meal plans, computers, books, supplies, and all other college-related expenses.
Have You Heard?
The Foundation is proud to help another exciting district initiative, the second Physics Bus, become a reality!

The first Physics bus has made a big impact for our students and we know the second bus will continue to excite them about sciences!

Through the help of The Foundation and donors like Karen Almond, .decimal, Disney, Duke Energy, Lockheed Martin, Matern Professional Engineering, and Physicira, no school operating funds were used to outfit the bus.
Thank you to Ali's Hope Foundation for their $5,000 donation to the SCPS Families In Need program.

These funds will be used to create a program focused on increasing family member's awareness about mental health.

The goal of this program is to help promote recovery for students.
Ali's Hope continues to be a great supporter of our students and their families!
