2020 Giving Challenge

Tuesday April 28th Noon to Wednesday April 29th Noon

The 2020 Giving Challenge is presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation



The Giving Challenge is an exciting 24-hour giving event that brings together more than 700 local nonprofit organizations listed on The Giving Partner with their passionate donors and community members to support causes and missions they care about while creating transformative impact. Since 2012, the Giving Challenge has acted as a catalyst for connection, helping donors throughout our region show their love for local nonprofit organizations serving Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties by providing more than $40 million in unrestricted funding. The 2018 Giving Challenge set a new standard for generosity in our community, when more than $11.7 million was raised in just 24 hours.

People who care about causes in our community can go online and make a secure donation, helping their favorite organizations receive special matching dollars and grant incentives.

Each participating organization has demonstrated transparency by developing an in-depth profile in The Giving Partner. Visit www.thegivingpartner.org to learn more about each non profit’s programmatic impact, leadership, planning, financials and needs.
