Through the generosity of our agents and staff, the MSC Foundation provides essential assistance to many deserving organizations on Florida’s Gulf Coast. The important work of these charities makes such a difference to so many lives, in turn enriching the vibrant fabric of our community.

Continuing our monthly spotlight on the deserving causes that receive grants from the MSC Foundation, we are proud to highlight:

The Venice Symphony – Summer Music Camp

The Venice Symphony captures its philanthropic efforts in four words: “Music with a Mission”.

The symphony is proud to provide a variety of music education programs for young people, including the annual music camp experience that has been running for more than 20 years. Offered to South Sarasota County third graders, the lucky campers choose from keyboard, string, jazz or vocal instruction, and spend valuable time learning musical concepts and history while getting to know their peers – building confidence and sparking a passion for music that lasts a lifetime.

The Laurel Civic Association

For more than 40 years, the Laurel Civic Association has been dedicated to making a difference in a wide range of neighborhood issues throughout Sarasota County. What started as a small group of concerned neighbors who’s main purpose it was to bring street lighting to a close knit African-American community, has grown into an organization of more than 300 active volunteers, donations and grants. The association has been able to improve living conditions, decrease hunger, offer access to healthcare and health information and provide educational support to disenfranchised children and adults.
