CLEARWATER – The Rays Baseball Foundation awarded the Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County Inc. with a $5,000 Community Fund Grant. The grant supports toe coalition’s School Readiness childcare scholarship program.

The coalition is one of 20 local nonprofit organizations to receive a grant, totaling $100,000 from the Rays Baseball Foundation Community Grant Fund Program.

“The Rays Baseball Foundation supports many deserving nonprofit organizations throughout the Tampa Bay area, and we are honored to be selected as a grant recipient once again,” said Lindsay Carson, Early Learning Coalition CEO.

The School Readiness scholarship program pays a portion of children’s childcare cost for economically disadvantaged families, helping parents to maintain employment, attend school and ultimately become economically self-sufficient in an effort to break the poverty cycle.

The $5,000 contribution supports the coalition’s annual match funding requirement. The federal government contributes $16 for each dollar donated. In return, the Rays Foundation’s donation will be multiplied to $80,000 and provide about 20 children with annual childcare scholarships in Pinellas County.

“This partnership with the Rays highlights the importance of early education in our community. These funds will allow us to spread our dollars further and ensure more children have the opportunity have quality early learning experiences,” Carson said.
