2018 Giving Challenge

05-01-2018 @ 12:00 pm - 05-02-2018 @ 12:00 pm

The 24-hour online giving begins at Noon (May 1) and runs until Noon (May 2). The Patterson Foundation will match all unique donations (from individuals or businesses), up to $100 per donor.

The “Be the One” theme of the 2018 Giving Challenge is inspired by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s belief that each one of us has the potential to impact a person, a cause, a community. The philosophy sprouts from the idea that each donor can be the one to make a positive, lasting difference.

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

The Giving Challenge encourages you to support the local nonprofits doing excellent work right here in your backyard!  Please consider supporting The Haven from Noon May 1 until Noon May 2 by donating to us through The Giving Challenge!   Your donation will help children and adults with developmental disabilities by supporting programs at The Haven that enhance quality of life!

Giving Instructions:

Visit givingpartnerchallenge.org on the day of the Giving Challenge, then search Community Haven for Adults and Children With Disabilities, Inc. d/b/a The Haven. You can donate to us directly through that website!
