The Giving Challenge is an online 24-hour giving event that connects more than 700 nonprofit organizations with passionate donors and community members to support diverse causes and create enduring impact in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties.

As an opportunity to strengthen our nonprofit community, your gift during the Giving Challenge will provide nonprofit partners with critical unrestricted funding and the flexibility to respond to community needs, especially as those needs evolve.

To strengthen your impact during the Giving Challenge, The Patterson Foundation is providing a dollar-for-dollar match on all unique donations from $25-$100, with no limit to the number of donations matched.

With so many possibilities and opportunities, how will you #BeTheOne during to the 2024 Giving Challenge? Support our community from Noon to Noon TODAY and TOMORROW, April 9-10, by being part of the 2024 Giving Challenge.

The Giving Challenge is hosted by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation. For more information go to
