MAKE A DIFFERENCE
UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County is a partnership that shares science-based knowledge with our community to create better outcomes for families, businesses and our environment. A part of improving Sarasota County since 1927, our programs last year reached nearly 62,000 people and our volunteers provided almost 17,000 hours of service valued at roughly $432,000.
Community support provides us an opportunity to expand and enhance our research-based educational programs and classes to reach an even-wider audience and make a greater impact here in Sarasota County. Consider making a tax-exempt donation through the University of Florida Foundation to help support our programs in agriculture, gardening and landscaping, natural resources, nutrition and healthy living, sustainability, and youth development.
Donate at ufgive.to/sarasotagt to provide support across our range of programs. Or, if you’d like to specify that your donation targets a program, simply visit the same link and note in the “Comments” section the program name for your support.
In addition, several of our programs have affiliated organizations that provide additional support. Read the brief descriptions for these programs, below, and get more information by clicking the "read more" action link beneath any section (or read all items).
If you prefer, you can donate your time, instead of (or, in addition to) showing direct financial support. If you would like to volunteer your services, we have unique opportunities throughout the year with these programs:
- Master Gardener Volunteers*
- 4-H Youth Development
- Florida Master Naturalists *
- Florida Waters Stewards*
- Energy Coaches*
- Community and School Gardens
