Friends of Curious & Kind


Friends of Curious and Kind is a Sarasota, FL based 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to enhancing community health through a deeper connection with nature.

We organize FREE events that invite the community to embrace the outdoors, fostering a sense of well-being and appreciation for our natural surroundings. By raising funds, we ensure that these events remain free and accessible to all members of our community.

Additionally, we provide financial support to children who aspire to participate in Forest School programs, ensuring financial accessibility and fostering a brighter, healthier future for everyone in our community.

Our mission is to empower individuals to explore and understand themselves, others, and the natural world, ultimately promoting mental and physical wellness for all.

Help us offer this enriching educational experience to all children, regardless of income.
