The First Tee of North Florida
The First Tee of North Florida is launching a financial education program, in partnership with Community First Cares Foundation, to empower young people with the skills to make life-changing financial decisions.
Financial education is incorporated with golf and other life skills during in-school, after-school and on-course programming for more than 131,000 youth in The First Tee of North Florida’s seven-county service area.
Jacksonville Public Library Foundation
Did you know that without reading and math enrichment during the summer, research shows that kids lose one to two months of learning? Year after year, the loss can add up. The Foundation has partnered with the Library to enhance programs throughout the summer across Jacksonville.
Your support will help keep neighborhood kids learning all summer long! With a $5 donation, you can support Summer Learning at your neighborhood Jacksonville Public Library branch and keep our kids reading. Each $5 help offset the costs for 1 child to attend a Summer Learning program.
