The 2024 Giving Challenge

Presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation, the Giving Challenge is an exciting 24-hour giving event taking place from Noon to Noon on April 9th and 10th that connects nearly 700 non-profit organizations with donors and community members to build relationships, support diverse causes and create enduring impact in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties. All donations made during the Giving Challenge are unrestricted gifts to the non-profit organization of your choice.

At Gulf Coast Partnership (GCP), we are gearing up for this remarkable opportunity to make a difference in addressing homelessness and housing, empowering youth leadership, providing disaster relief, and introducing our latest initiative, Stars Academy - a childcare facility aimed at bridging the gap in affordable childcare services for ages 0-5 years in Charlotte County.
