The annual 24-hour Giving Challenge will kick off for Suncoast Humane Society on Sept. 20th, at noon, and with this year’s theme of “Be The One”, it is a perfect fit for the homeless animals of Suncoast Humane Society! Will you “Be The One” for the adoptable animals of Suncoast Humane Society who are waiting for their happy ending?
To participate in this year’s challenge, visit Suncoast Humane Society’s website anytime between noon Sept. 20th and noon Sept. 21st. During this 24-hour period, donations can be made online. With a minimum donation of just $25, this is an opportunity for anyone to be a philanthropist. In addition, The Patterson Foundation will generously match donations from new donors, up to $100, at a 2:1 ratio. This turns a first-time donation of $100 into $300 for the animals of Suncoast Humane Society!
The Giving Challenge is an exciting 24-hour giving event supporting 500 local nonprofits. Since 2012, donors from throughout the region have shown their love for local nonprofit organizations by providing more than $15 million in unrestricted funding to support their missions. Last year’s event raised nearly $15,000 for the programs and homeless animals served by Suncoast Humane Society.
The 2016 Giving Challenge is presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation, as well as support from Manatee Community Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, and the Herald-Tribune Media Group.
Suncoast Humane Society has been serving animals and people since 1971. Founded as Englewood Animal Aid Society, the organization’s services and programs were soon challenged to meet the demands placed on them by the pet over-population crises.
Expansions to their facility in Englewood during the 1980s and 1990s helped the Society to more effectively provide for a growing service area. To reflect the changes, the organization became Suncoast Humane Society. Today their service area includes Charlotte County, most of Sarasota County, and the Boca Grande portion of Lee County, a total of over 450 square miles.
