Be the One for Sarasota Opera With Special Mini-Challenges

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING TUESDAY APR 28, 2020

Tuesday is the day! Starting at noon on Tuesday, April 28, Giving Challenge 2020 will begin and is your opportunity to support Sarasota Opera’s Relief Fund with a gift of $25, $50, $100, or more. This is a special year for us as this Giving Challenge will help us mitigate the anticipated $1 million loss we will incur due to the early closing of our season. Your gift will also have triple the impact! The Patterson Foundation is generously matching all Giving Challenge contributions up to $100. In addition, The Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation is providing an additional match for all gifts. That means that the first $100 of your Giving Challenge gift turns into $300! Any amount over $100 will also be matched by the Toulmin Foundation.

Additionally, we will host mini-challenges to increase the impact of your gift, and in some cases, provide an additional match! Below are the different opportunities throughout the 24-hours of the Giving Challenge when you can increase your impact. But remember, a gift at any time will go a long way! Click here to visit our Giving Challenge donation page, and thank you for supporting Sarasota Opera through the Giving Challenge!
