The Giving Partner
The Giving Partner is your local resource connecting philanthropy and our community.
The Giving Partner, powered by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, allows local nonprofits to tell their story at all levels to communicate to all audiences.
This is a powerful, searchable online database with over 700 profiles of charitable organizations serving Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties.
Our goal is to share information about nonprofits that serve our local area, to help our community learn how each nonprofit makes a difference, as well as discover how to engage in the causes you care about most and inspire philanthropy.
Each 501(c)(3) organization’s profile reflects holistic information including core mission and needs, programmatic impact, leadership, planning, and financial health.
To be eligible for grants and other opportunities, nonprofits are required to maintain an up-to-date profile. A profile with an Approved/Current badge/status signifies that the organization provided the required content and key information was reviewed by our team (this is not a grade, rating, or certification).
The Community Foundation of Sarasota County has reviewed each organization’s profile in The Giving Partner for completeness of the information, however, we depend on our nonprofit partners for the accuracy of the information provided.
Whether your organization is new to The Giving Partner, or already has a profile, we are glad to have you be a part of our online platform. Below is important information which includes everything you'll need to know to ensure that creating and maintaining your profile is a success!
