Gold Coast Eagle Distributing makes $6.8 million donation

Lakewood Ranch's Gold Coast Eagle Distributing announced a $6.82 million contribution to Step Up For Students, a nonprofit organization that helps students in need.

Company leaders presented the contribution Thursday during an information session for Manatee- and Sarasota-area families about Step Up For Students’ K-12 scholarship program.

Step Up For Students helps provide scholarships to qualified low-income families throughout Florida, allowing recipients to choose between a scholarship to help with private school tuition and fees or a transportation scholarship to attend an out-of-district public school.

“We are honored to partner with a company that goes the extra mile to spread the word about our scholarship program,” Step Up For Students Director of Operational Compliance & Training Jody Hysler said. “We are grateful for Gold Coast Eagle’s generous contributions that have helped so many Florida students, as well as their community outreach efforts.”

During the 2013-14 school year, about 800 students in Sarasota and Manatee counties benefited from a Step Up scholarship.

Gold Coast Eagle, located in Lakewood Ranch, is the 50th largest of 675 Anheuser-Busch beer distributors in the United States.
