A Message from the President
The Krewe of Sant’ Yago Education Foundation has been honored to serve our community by providing support for hard working qualified Latino students in pursuit of the American Dream. All contributions we receive are channeled directly into the fulfilment of our mission and we are an all volunteer organization with marginal administrative expenses. We recognize there are many great philanthropic options in the Bay Area and we hope that you will choose to partner with us in our pursuit to maximize educational opportunities offered to exceptional students in our community!
In 1994, the members of the Krewe formalized their philanthropic commitments by creating the Krewe of Sant’ Yago Education Foundation which is an independent 501(c)(3) organization committed to the enrichment of the local Tampa Bay Area community. Currently the Krewe of Sant’ Yago Fondation provides scholarships to over 72 local college students at the University of Tampa, the University of South Florida, and Hillsborough Community College but the goal is to continue to expand that number reflecting the continued expansion of the Foundation’s philanthropic efforts and its unyielding commitment to the unique heritage of the Tampa Bay Area.
