Teachers selected for Exploration funding by Education Foundation of Sarasota County

Posted on December 07, 2012 by The Patterson Foundation

Eight area teachers were recently selected as recipients of Exploration Funding awarded through the Education Foundation of Sarasota County. The funding enables teachers and students to take advantage of art, science and history educational experiences cataloged on EdExploreSRQ.com, a platform launched last year by Sarasota County Schools and The Patterson Foundation's EdExplore Initiative.

EdExploreSRQ.com showcases educational experiences that are tied to state academic standards and curriculum plans. Teacher use the website to find education experiences for students that drive home lessons learned in the classroom. 

Funding from $1,500 to $5,000 are awarded to Sarasota-area teachers who develop compelling proposals. 

To inspire further generosity, The Patterson Foundation (TPF) continues to match new or increased philanthropic gifts for Exploration Funding from individuals, families, companies, clubs and associations over the next two years, up to a total of $500,000.
