Extending a helping hand to our community is a fundamental part of maintaining the values that form the basis for Michael Saunders & Company.

Thanks to the generous donations of our agents and staff to the MSC Foundation, we are able to grant essential funds to deserving non-profit organizations in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and Lee Counties. These organizations provide life changing help to those in need, offering shelter, sustenance, education and a path to self sufficiency. The vital assistance we are able to give further enriches our enduring connections to the communities that have so nurtured our business.

We are proud to continue our spotlight on the organizations that receive funds from the MSC Foundation:

Child Protection Center, Inc.

For more than thirty years, the CPC has been dedicated to providing community-wide services to victims of child abuse. Throughout the month of April, the CPC showcases their signature project, “Paint the Town Blue”, a month long initiative to bring awareness and prevention of child abuse to the forefront, thus making a significantly positive impact on our community. Blue ribbons are placed all over downtown Sarasota, St. Armands Circle and other nearby locations, as well as blue paint inside pediatrician’s offices, libraries, businesses, health centers and schools.

Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center

SPARCC was formed as a non-profit agency in 1979. The center is committed to providing shelter and assistance to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, while actively engaging in promoting awareness throughout the community. SPARCC is the only state-certified center for domestic violence and sexual assault services in Sarasota and DeSoto Counties, with a shelter operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In 2011-2012, SPARC provided 6,758 shelter days to 185 women and 134 children. Learn more about SPARCC HERE .
