About the Foundation

Cordelia Lee Beattie established this foundation in 1973 to honor her late husband, Edward William Beattie. A concert violinist, Mrs. Beattie retired to Sarasota, Florida and became a musician with the Florida West Coast Symphony. Cordelia Beattie's passion in music and fine arts prompted her to request that the foundation focus on organizations providing services for Sarasota County, Florida.


The purpose of the Cordelia Lee Beattie Foundation is to provide scholarships for deserving, gifted, and needy individuals without regard to race, creed, nationality, color, or sex in order that they may attend schools, colleges, universities, or other educational institutions in the state of Florida, or in order that they may engage in scientific or medical research in the state of Florida.

In view of the Grantor's lifelong interest in music and the fine arts, it is the Grantor's request that the foundation give particular attention to the requirements of the various cultural organizations of Sarasota County, including the West Coast Symphony Orchestra and its scholarship trust fund if the applicant is seriously interested in pursuing a musical career.
