Impact Statement
For the last 16 years, Every Child, Inc. has had a Backpack Giveaway
and a Holiday Party for our neediest children.  We have also provided weekend food for families. Along with these priorities, Every Child, Inc. has been giving away books at every event.  And, for the last 7 years, we have sponsored the Cinderella Project and last year it was changed to Cinderella and Her Prince, as we raised funds for young men to rent a tux for their prom.  Our two newest projects are "Welcome Baby" and "Let' B Safe" 
Needs Statement
The Cinderella and Her Prince  Project  $1500.  Food Giveaway  $2500.  Welcome Baby $3600.  Book distribution $2000.  We are an all volunteer program and  are lucky to have many wonderful volunteers who continue to support us year to year.  All funds raised go to purchasing what we need for the project we are working on at the time.  The more money we raise, the more we can spend on the children.
Background Statement
Every Child, Inc. was formed 16 years ago in response to a need in the community.  Children were starting school without the necessary school supplies.  Our first year we supplied a backpack filled with school supplies for every child who lived in Sarasota's projects.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Because of the needs of the children in our community,  I continue to be committed.  We have many challenges in terms of funding.  With the economic problems we have been facing, it has become necessary to be more and more creative.  Economic problems means more children need our help, but also many donors have had to cut back on their donations.  Thank goodness Sarasota is such a giving and caring community. 
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
Although we have no CEO, we continue to try to meet the growing needs of the children in our community.  At this point almost 50% of the children in our community are on free or reduced lunches.  This has grown since the inception of Every Child, Inc.
