The Giving Challenge is a fundraising drive put on by The Community Foundation of Sarasota County. Last year, more than $7 million was raised in just 24 hours to benefit 449 nonprofits listed on The Giving Partner. This year, the Southside PTO is one of those organizations! The Southside PTO is a 501 (c)(3) and we have spent lots of time this past year completing our application.
We are so grateful to be a part of this incredible challenge! Because this is our first year, ALL of our donors are NEW donors. That means that donations are matched 2:1 up to $100. The minimum donation is $25.
In order to be matched, donations must be made online by visiting www.givingpartnerchallenge.org...the website will begin accepting donations on September 20th at noon and will end on September 21st at noon. Once you're there, search for Southside PTO and make your donation.
Thank you to The Community Foundation of Sarasota County with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation, as well as support from Manatee Community Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, William G. and Maria Selby Foundation, and the Herald-Tribune Media Group.
