Giving Challenge

Won’t you BE THE ONE?

Your Gift Can Make a Difference.

Dear Friends,

The Giving Challenge is back and better than ever! Thanks to The Community Foundation of Sarasota County, with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation, our community is set up for the ultimate WIN-WIN situation.

Your donations are being matched 1:1 up to $100, per donor, per organization! What could be better than that? Minimum donations are just $25.

Additionally, thanks to the generous support of two anonymous donors, Easterseals Happiness House has set up a “FRIENDS FUND” in the amount of $25,000. Your gifts to Easterseals during the Giving Challenge will be matched by this fund in addition to the Giving Challenge match. Wow! That’s what I call making the most of your giving dollars.
