Be The One! 2018 Giving Challenge - May 1st through May 2nd NOON to NOON

What is the Giving Challenge?

The Giving Challenge is a 24 hour online fundraising opportunity for non-profits in our community.  All donations between $25 and $100 are matched 1:1!

Is there an event I have to attend or can I do this from home? 

You can do either or both!  This year our annual Roll-a-thon will be on Wednesday, May 2nd to allow the students to get involved and to celebrate this amazing matching opportunity.  You are welcome to attend this super fun event, all donations need to be made online however, to qualify for the donor matching through the Patterson Foundation.

Who is Mangrove School of Sarasota?
