With a core purpose to change lives, Scott Fischer Enterprises – through the Scott Fischer Enterprises Fund of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation – presented a grant of $20,000 to Champions for Learning (CFL).
An opportunity presented by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation’s Compassionate Shark Tank, the $20,000 Community Impact Grant will support Champions for Learning’s Real World Learning Model: College and Career Preparation Program. The program, which started as a collaboration between CFL, Collier County Public Schools, FutureMakers and the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, facilitates opportunities for trained volunteers to prepare high school students for graduation, postsecondary education, and the workforce. The program brings together real world coaches, mentors, parents, educators, and other volunteers to also help students with college access, financial aid, and career exploration.
“Scott has taken his philanthropy to a strategic level by working with the Foundation to determine the greatest impact of his corporate philanthropy,” said Sarah Owen, president and CEO of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, which serves 5 counties in the Southwest Florida region.
In addition to the Scott Fischer Enterprises Fund, Scott Fischer Enterprises (SFE) supports other charities to create opportunities for local youth. Committed to supporting Blessings in a Backpack, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Junior Achievement, and the March of Dimes, SFE ensures each of its seven Harley-Davidson locations nationwide has a hand in making a positive difference for the next generation of leaders.
