Getting Giddy over the Giving Challenge

Celebrate the Giving Challenge:
With over 130 gifts approaching a total of $14,000, we couldn’t be more thrilled with the progress halfway through the 24 hour Giving Challenge! #GivingChallenge15
Your contribution counts more than ever this year. Here are the ways to TRIPLE your gift.
1) The Patterson Foundation is providing a dollar for dollar match for each online donation – up to $250 per donor, per organization.
2) An Easter Seals Friends Fund has been set up in the amount of $25,000. Each gift to Easter Seals will be matched by this account TRIPLING the amount donated.
3) $35,000 in prizes for nonprofits that cultivate the highest totals of new online donors. We need YOUR help to accomplish this!
***HOW IT WORKS*** Give your gift through the online Giving Challenge website with your credit card and let the matching begins.
***HOW TO GIVE***   Visit September 1 – 2, noon to noon. On the Easter Seals giving page, complete the online giving form. In order for the donation to be matched, gifts MUST through this online website during the 24-hour window.
***SOCIAL MEDIA*** Be sure to follow our Facebook page and use the #GivingChallenge15 when you post before and during the event. Tag your friends, family, coworkers… anyone you can think of who could give. Thank you in advance for your support and happy giving!
***Special Thanks*** The 2015 Giving Challenge is made possible by the Community Foundation of Sarasota and The Patterson Foundation with support from the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Manatee Community Foundation, and the Herald-Tribune Media Group.
