2018 Giving Challenge

You are here

24 - Hour Matching Donations

Please join us for our first ever #GivingChallenge18. The Giving Challenge is an exciting 24 hour online fundraising event beginning at 12noon on Tuesday, May 1 to noon on May 2, 2018. Presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation. Donations of $25-$100 will be matched.

You have a lot of choices on where you donate. Little children in our community need you to #BeTheOne. They are eager to learn and we want to make sure they have the tools they need. We value your support during #GivingChallenge18.

Our proceeds will directly benefit the Charlotte County Suncoast’s Campaign for Grade-Level Reading efforts. This funding ensures more local children in low-income families succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship. #BeTheOne to make a difference in the life of a child today.

Our mission is to eliminate poverty. Be a #gamechanger by making a difference in the lives of our children today.



From noon on May 1, to noon on May 2,  Click here to donate...
