Suncoast Charities for Children is a 501(c)(3) that provides funding support to the Suncoast Foundation, which over the years has constructed area facilities valued at over $20 million. These facilities are located in North Port, Venice, and Sarasota and last year provided services to approximately 8,000 special needs children, teens, adults and their families. Non-profit agencies that occupy these facilities include Community Haven, Sarasota County Special Olympics, Children First, The Florida Center for Early Childhood, and Loveland Village. Net proceeds raised from special events help maintain some of these aging facilities and support special project requests. This is beneficial so that the non-profits occupying these facilities for only $1 per year, can direct their program and service money towards the clients they serve.
