Our Mission

Pines of Sarasota Foundation was incorporated in 1990 to support the endowment, capital and programmatic needs of Pines of Sarasota, a not-for-profit senior care community serving residents even after they have outlived their resources.


Dear Friends,

It has been my honor to serve for more than 35 years in all areas of nonprofit management. In that time, I have assisted individuals in 32 countries and the 50 United States as a trustee of philanthropy, working with hundreds of thousands of donors and recipients worldwide. Now, I am privileged to serve Pines of Sarasota Foundation as President.

As I undertake this important and strategic role, I am thankful for the dedication and loyalty of all of you who understand, and are committed to, the life-saving work done every day at Pines of Sarasota. Here at Pines, I have been an eyewitness to hope, courage, trust and so much more, which is the lasting difference you have made. Please know, I share your commitment and look forward to joining with you as we build upon this legacy. Together, we will continue to create a community where seniors can achieve their goals and live with dignity—the mission and vision that is the heart of Pines.

As we begin the next chapter in the life of Pines of Sarasota Foundation, I look forward to getting to know you better. As a veteran Certified Fund Raising Executive, I aspire to the highest standards of ethics and competence and strive to be a strategic leader who gives exceptional individual service and ensures the integrity of each gift. I want to serve you as you shape your family, financial, and social legacy.

Thank you again for your continued partnership. Please do not hesitate to let me know if I can be of service to you in any way. To the degree we serve others, to that degree we are successful. May you find us faithful!

Yours for a better community,

Janet K. Ginn, CFRE - President
