Fellow Members,
I was sorry to learn that Jerry Jarrett passed away on May 28, 2014. Jerry was an early Foundation committee member and a great source of Foundation knowledge. Jerry was a very accomplished individual and had an amazing philanthropic background. His advice and counsel will be missed on the Foundation. We have many talented people here at the Venice Yacht Club.

The Foundation is starting a new six-month grant cycle which ends on November 1. We currently have $7,840 available for this grant cycle which we hope to increase to $20,000 to $30,000 with a successful fundraising effort.

The committee has selected the new Venice High School Performing Arts Center as our signature project for this year. The Performing Arts Center is projected to have a grand opening in November.

SAVE THE DATE: We are planning a fundraising party for the Center to be held on October 11 at the Venice Yacht Club. We are working on a program of entertainment that will involve four or five different short performances by various groups that will be using the new Performing Arts Center.

Respectfully submitted,
Wayne Hall, Chairperson

Fellow Members,
Your Foundation Committee was busy during the month of May. The Stan Wright Memorial Golf Tournament was held on May 1 at Jacaranda Golf and Country Club. We had 48 golfers participate. Bill Dowling anticipates net proceeds from the golf tournament to be approximately $6,000. This was a very successful first time event. We are encouraging our members to take advantage of our reciprocal privileges at Jacaranda Golf Course and Country Club. This is a beautiful and very friendly facility.

May 1 was also the end of our first six month grant cycle. The Foundation received donations of $21,300 during the six month cycle. Pursuant to our policy, 80% of this amount ($17,040) was available for grants.

The Foundation received 18 grant applications requesting a total of $34,650. The Committee decided to award about $9,200 in grants this cycle. We want to keep some money in reserve for a signature project later in the year.

I am pleased to report that the committee made the following grant awards:
Big Brothers & Sisters $750
Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota $500
Center for Building Hope $500
Child Protection Center $750
Englewood Community Care Clinic $500
Habitat for Humanity $1,000
Interfaith Outreach $750
Laurel Civic Assn. $750
Loveland Center $500
Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinsons $600
Our Mother's House $850
Venice Art Center $500
Venice Theater $750
VYBA $500
Total $9,200

The next grant cycle ends November 1. The Committee discussed having a signature project this year. The favored project at this point is a grant for the new Venice High School Performing Arts Center. Chair Wayne Hall is working on a grant proposal with high school representatives. It is anticipated the proceeds from our fundraising dinner on October 11, 2014 will be used to support the grant once the details are worked out.

Respectfully submitted,
Wayne Hall, Chairperson
