What’s #GivingChallenge2022 ?
Join us and other nonprofits serving Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties during this exciting 24-hour giving event! People who care about causes in our community can go online and make a secure donation, helping their favorite organizations receive special matching dollars and grant incentives. (Please note that the donations page will not be available until April 26 at noon sharp!)
We believe that you have a right to know how we run our nonprofit. Visit our profile to learn more about our programmatic impact, leadership, planning, financials and needs.
Your donation does double good, since the Patterson Foundation is matching both repeat donors and “new” donors’ contributions during the Giving Challenge. There’s a minimum donation of $25, and matches will be made up to $100. For larger donations, consider splitting your gift with friends or family.
How can I #BeTheOne ?
Each and every person can be the one to make a difference during the 2022
Giving Challenge. Everyone, no matter the size of their gift, can be a philanthropist. Want to help even more? Simply share this post, adding your own wording if you like! Follow us on Facebook and share our daily posts with your friends and loved ones. Yup, they too can donate, even if they live Up North or heck, in Tahiti!
The photo above shows our most pressing challenge that we hope can be funded by our followers, supporters, and members during the Giving Challenge. If the rotting window sills on our east wall are not replaced quickly, we will lose the original circa 1900s windows that make the Crocker Memorial Church so graceful. And after the sills, the columns on our portico need shoring up. As they say, “after 100, it’s patch, patch, patch.” Help Sarasota keep a small reminder of its past, by helping the Historical Society through the Giving Challenge, where your donation of $25-$100 will be doubled!
