Giving Challenge Results - Total Raised: $26,720

In this time of unprecedented need, our community and its passionate donors reached out with a remarkable outpouring of support during the 2020 Giving Challenge, providing critical funding to nearly 700 nonprofit organizations across Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties.

Thanks to your generosity, the 2020 Giving Challenge enhanced and augmented the efforts of our nonprofit community, as the unrestricted funds raised during the Giving Challenge now provide our nonprofit partners flexibility to respond to community needs. Thank you for Being the One to make a difference.

This year, we are thankful to FPL for providing matching funds up to $5,000 to help care for our most vulnerable in Charlotte County during this pandemic. FPL is committed to helping our neighbors during this crisis to provide critical support to those struggling to meet their basic needs, which is why they have partnered with UWCC to be a hero in Charlotte County. We are very happy to announce Charlotte Miller, FPL External Affairs Mgr., Southwest Florida, as our new 2020-2021 Board President! Charlotte has been on our UWCC Board for two years and we are proud to welcome her during this exciting 2020 Giving Challenge.

The Giving Challenge is hosted by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation.
