SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY APR 1, 2020

The changes taking place in our community are happening rapidly and can feel overwhelming, leaving many wondering how we can help. As the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, we exist first and foremost to serve our community as a trusted partner especially in times of critical need.

In moments like this, philanthropy can truly shine. More than ever, each one us can be the one to ensure our community remains healthy and resilient.

As an initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are relying on the time-tested and trusted Season of Sharing partnership to help the most vulnerable individuals and families with immediate basic needs such as payments for utilities, childcare, and rent. Our longtime partner, The Patterson Foundation, has committed up to $1 million to strengthen this important safety net, including an immediate $500,000 contribution along with an additional dollar-for-dollar match up to $500,000.

To support local nonprofit and community organizations engaging in short-term response and longer-term recovery, we also have several grant opportunities available, including Community Impact and Healthcare Grants. Additionally, the 2020 Giving Challenge remains scheduled for April 28-29, as the unrestricted funds raised during the challenge will provide nonprofit partners flexibility to respond to community needs, especially as those needs change.

We appreciate your support and generosity, now and always. Together, we can make a difference.
