The Southwest Florida Women’s Foundation has received a $50,000 grant from the Southwest Florida Community Foundation which was leveraged into $200,000 through matches to support the Earn to Learn Florida Program, an initiative of the Southwest Florida Women's Foundation. Earn to Learn Florida helps low to moderate income students pursue higher education with little or no student debt. It’s a simple formula that combines student savings with financial aid, required financial literacy training and success coaching.
