The Patterson Foundation


A key factor in the Giving Challenge’s success has been the Community Foundation of Sarasota County's collaboration with The Patterson Foundation (TPF), which has provided more than $30 million in matching funds and prizes to incentivize donor participation since 2012. The Patterson Foundation strengthens the efforts of people, organizations, and communities by focusing on issues that address common aspirations and foster wide participation, along with ways organizations learn and share as they evolve.

The Patterson Foundation continues to uplift the nonprofit sector in our region through the 2024 Giving Challenge. To strengthen giving throughout our community, The Patterson Foundation will contribute a 1:1 match for unique donations, up to $100 per donor, per nonprofit organization. There is no limit on the number of unique individual matches a nonprofit organization can receive.
