Be the One To Inspire Opportunity

Save the date! The Giving Challenge returns from Noon to Noon on April 26-27, 2022, for 24 hours of INSPIRED GIVING that comes to life online across our region.

The 2022 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 online giving event that connects 700+ nonprofit organizations with passionate donors and community members to support diverse causes and create enduring impact in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties.

A key factor in the Giving Challenge’s success has been the Community Foundation’s collaboration with The Patterson Foundation, which has provided $24 million in matching funds and donor incentives since 2012.

The Patterson Foundation is continuing its work to support the nonprofit sector in our region through the 2022 Giving Challenge. To strengthen giving throughout our community, The Patterson Foundation will contribute a 1:1 match for unique donations, up to $100 per donor, per nonprofit organization. There will be no limit on the number of unique individual matches a nonprofit organization can receive.

Being a part of the Giving Challenge can transform nonprofit organizations through meaningful relationships and partnerships, all while strengthening their potential reach.
