The Louis and Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust recently announced a matching challenge through its 2020 Flanzer Contribution Matching Program in hopes of inspiring locals across Sarasota and the Suncoast area to make a difference in their communities. All donations between $5 and $500 will be matched 1:1, up to $500,000, for select nonprofit agencies in the social service, social welfare, K-12 education and healthcare sectors. "The 2020 Flanzer Contribution Matching Program is a year-round giving opportunity and, depending upon its success, we will consider expanding the amount available for match and whether to make it an annual program," said Dr. R. Dean Hautamaki, co-trustee of the Flanzer Trust. 

Individuals who wish to participate in the 2020Flanzer Contribution Matching Program can visit FlanzerTrust.org to make an online donation through PayPal. Donors can also send checks payable to the Louis and Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust to its offices at 1843 Floyd Street, Sarasota. Once an individual's donation has been processed, the Flanzer Trust will send the contribution and the associated matching funds to the designated partner agency. The Flanzer Trust will also absorb 100 percent of the program with no charge or reduction in any contribution. 

Nonprofit organizations interested in participating are invited to attend a press conference at the Gloria & Louis Flanzer Campus at 1753 Ringling Blvd. in Sarasota on Friday, January 31, at 1:30 pm.
