The McCune Family Foundation has awarded Children First a $50,000 grant to provide scholarships for Sarasota County’s most economically vulnerable children. This grant will aid the agency in continuing to provide access to comprehensive care and education. Since 2017, the McCune Family Foundation has granted $180,000 to Children First through support of the agency’s Raise Your Hand Campaign and comprehensive services for children and families.
As the exclusive provider for Head Start and Early Head Start services for Sarasota County, Children First provides year-round early childhood education for more than 900 children and their families.
“The McCune Family Foundation understands the importance of providing families with opportunity through early childhood education. We are thankful for their continued, uplifting support and partnership as we provide the highest quality of care and services to our children and families living at-risk,” says CEO Philip Tavill.
