Needs Statement
  1. Increased funding for the Saramana Operating Trust Fund in order to award greater Contest Winner Amounts. For each additional $50,000 we receive, the Contest Amounts of our four main Contests increases by approximately $500 per Contest (based on investment returns). Our short-term goal is to increase each Contest Payout to $2,000. Our long-term goal is to increase each Contest Payout to $5,000 or more. Currently, our primary source of contest money is chapter members’ dues.
  2. Increased contest amounts will entice more of our area’s students to enter our contests and learn more about the founding of our country. Our Trust Documents state: “Under no circumstances shall the Trustees invade the principal of the Trust Fund”. This means that donations made today will continue to provide Contest Funds to the area’s students for years to come.
Background Statement

The founders of our chapter began a noble endeavor in 1953 when ten men gathered to pledge their energies to carry on the principles of our nation’s founders. They created the Saramana chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution on the west coast of Florida. The new chapter attracted 32 members and was chartered on April 15, 1953.

With seven officers, three board members and just five active committees, they sent two of their number to state as officers and one to a national position in the first three years as a chapter. Our members were and are totally committed to our mission. This level of commitment continues today with several members currently holding state offices as well as Chairing or serving on numerous important Committee’s at both the State and National level. In past years, we have had members holding National Office, including two serving as President General.

Our chapter has hosted state meetings and Annual meetings. We have received many awards and several of our educational programs have become state and national programs. Eight of our members were awarded the coveted SAR Patriot Medal.

Saramana is one of the largest and most active Chapters in Florida. This year and in past years, many of our members and officers were named Congress Delegates and have attended the National SAR Congress.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

Our Chapter Membership has grown to where we are one of the largest chapters in Florida. We have more of our members volunteering to serve as Officers and help serve on our many committees and serve our community.

Our Trust Fund has grown to where it is augmenting the amount we can offer for our Contest Winners, instead of the entire amount coming from our member’s dues.

We have increased communications between our Chapter and the School Boards of Sarasota and Manatee Counties by alerting them to the Scholarship opportunities for their students.

We have increased our communications with the Girl Scouts of Gulf Coast Florida and the Southwest Florida Council, Boy Scouts of America. Specifically as it relates to the Manatee District and the Two Rivers District that serves Sarasota County. These local scouting organizations can use our contests as teaching tools.

We continue to have our March luncheon set aside as our Fire Safety and Emergency Medical Services awards ceremony. We invite every Fire Chief in Sarasota and Manatee counties to nominate one candidate to receive either the Fire Safety Commendation Medal, the Emergency Medical Services Commendation Medal, or the Medal for Heroism. The Sons of the American Revolution presents these medals to deserving Fire Safety and Emergency Medical Services Officers annually. The officer’s commendation is published in a book and presented to the National Congress every July. This book and each officer’s commendation become a permanent part of the Society’s library and museum. Our Chapter will sponsor the lunch of each officer nominated and one presenter.

We also continue to have our April luncheon set aside as our Police and Law Enforcement awards ceremony. We invite every Sheriff and Police Chief in Sarasota and Manatee counties to nominate one candidate to receive either the Law Enforcement Commendation Medal or the Medal for Heroism. The Sons of the American Revolution presents these medals to deserving Law Enforcement Officers annually. The officer’s commendation is published in a book and presented to the National Congress every July. This book and each officer’s commendation become a permanent part of the Society’s library and museum. Our Chapter will sponsor the lunch of each officer nominated and one presenter.

We enjoy encouraging today’s youth to learn about the history of our country. We are honored to provide recognition for public service to our communities. We completely enjoy our goal to working to inspire our community with the principles on which our nation was founded and we honor, respect, and support veterans.

Saramana Chapter selects an Outstanding JROTC Cadet and enters that cadet into their State Society's Outstanding JROTC Cadet program

These awards are presented to the Outstanding Cadet's in their next to last year of JROTC.

 

The Enhanced JROTC program objectives: To recognize Outstanding JROTC Cadets at the Chapter level. To work with JROTC units to determine how best to encourage and recognize these outstanding student citizens and support this exceptional national youth program.

The selection of the JROTC Outstanding Cadet is based upon: nominee’s scholastic standing, grade point average, levels of participation and leadership in the JROTC and extra curricula activities, and quality of the essay. Particular attention is given to spelling, grammar and punctuation as well as quality and applicability of the essay content.

Participants receive a highly prestigious award that recognizes they are a person of outstanding character.

The Chapter is looking for one candidate from every JROTC Unit in Sarasota, Manatee, and Hardee Counties. Each student that enters this contest will deliver an original essay on “How JROTC has prepared me to be a better citizen of the United States of America”. Few students are ever asked to put this type of thought process on paper. Each JROTC Cadet must plan, organize, and direct their thoughts in a mature and introspective manner. Students will learn more about themselves; working as part of a team; focusing on goals; and personal discipline.

The winners can claim this success on their college applications and the Chapter will document their accomplishment in the monthly newsletter, which will be emailed to each student as evidence of their accomplishment. Written essays develop one as an individual and gives tremendous confidence to the essayist.

Program Success Monitoring

The program works, its success is measured by the number of contestants we attract. The greater the number of contestants, the more young adults have been exposed to learning about themselves and this great country. This will make them better citizens and more knowledgeable leaders in years to come.

Program Success Examples In 2017, at our George Washington Birthday Celebration we had seven JROTC Cadets enter our Enhanced JROTC Essay Contest. We awarded the winning Cadet a check for $1,500 and a Bronze Medallion on a Neck Ribbon, framed bar with a bronze star and a certificate.   The Cadets that did not win were awarded the Bronze Good Citizenship Medal, with Bar and Certificate.  Like the winner, they also wrote an essay and had letters of recommendation from their School Principal and their Senior Military Instructor. Students express a satisfaction at every level of this scholarship contest, as seen in local, state and national judging, All successes are accompanied by certain tangible awards, which are useful in developing a curriculum vitae for further education use.

Comments
Program Comments by Organization
Thanks to the Giving Challenge, the Saramana SAR Chapter has been able to significantly increase our Cash Scholarships we provide to the areas youth. For the 2012 / 2013 academic year, our largest 1st place award was $600.00 and in only one contest did we pay for 2nd place. For the 2016 / 2017 academic year we have more than one contest where we pay out in Cash Scholarships 1st place $1,500.00, 2nd place $350.00 and 3rd place $150.00.
 
Our Saramana SAR Chapter is faced with a couple of challenges. Our fiscal year is the calendar year. Our members pay dues for a calendar year. Our goal is to meet in May of each year and create a budget for the coming calendar year. One reason we budget in May is because we need to be able to advertise our Youth Cash Scholarship awards to the areas schools (public, private, and homeschoolers) as well as scouting groups and other youth organizations before the school year starts.
 
With the Giving Challenge taking place in the last part of September, and the fact that we do not want to spend more than we can afford, we are guessing on the amounts we can give for Cash Scholarships and relying more on what we have on hand vs what we MAY receive during the Giving Challenge.
