The Giving Challenge is an exciting 24-hour online giving event that connects 700+ nonprofit organizations, including Venice MainStreet, with passionate donors and community members to support diverse causes and create enduring impact in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties.

Since 2012, the Giving Challenge has acted as a catalyst for connection and provided more than $59 million in unrestricted funding over seven challenges. During the 2020 Giving Challenge, in a time of unprecedented need, our community reached out with a remarkable outpouring of support, raising $19.1 million in just 24 hours.

Being a part of the Giving Challenge can transform nonprofit organizations through meaningful relationships and partnerships, all while strengthening their potential reach. The Giving Challenge is hosted by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation.
