Funds will support Earn to Learn FL™ Students
Bonita Springs, FL – December 6, 2018 – Proceeds from the 11th Annual Hunters Ridge “Gives Back” Campaign, organized by General Manager Don Huprich, will support the Southwest Florida Women’s Foundation’s Earn to Learn FL™ initiative.
It’s an honor for Hunters Ridge Golf & County Club to be associated with such an outstanding organization. We look forward to supporting the Southwest Florida Women’s Foundation for many, many years to come,” states General Manager Don Huprich.
The donation of $5,000 from Hunters Ridge “Gives Back” Campaign held on November 11, 2018 will support Earn to Learn FL™ students to achieve their goals through education. Why does this matter? Less than 20% of Southwest Florida women and men over age 25 have earned a bachelor's degree. Earn to Learn FL™ empowers low to moderate income students to successfully complete college or career and technical education. The result: students become investors in their own future, breaking the cycle of limited family income and improving their earning potential.
The generosity of the Hunter’s Ridge Golf and Country Club community is greatly appreciated. They are a good partner to help support hard working, but income challenged, students achieve their education and career goals,” says Southwest Florida Women’s Foundation CEO Brenda Tate.
The Southwest Florida Women’s Foundation, serving Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties, is the only non-profit in Southwest Florida focused on women and girls and was the first to publish academic research assessing the status of women in the area. The Women’s Foundation invests in programs that educate, boost entrepreneurship and advocate for policies to elevate the status of women and girls.

About Earn to Learn FL™, an initiative of the Southwest Florida Women’s Foundation
Earn to Learn FL™ supports low to moderate income students in earning a post-secondary degree or certificate, while escaping the burden of student loan debt. The program is structured so that students contribute mandatory savings of $500, which is then matched with $4,000 in financial aid funds through Southwest Florida Women’s Foundation. The program incorporates financial literacy training for each of the students to ensure that they are prepared for long-term success. Not only does it assist students to achieve graduation on time, but also helps them enter the job market with little or no student loans.here...
