Thank You Donors!

The Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County is humbled by the outpouring of support displayed during the 2020 Giving Challenge. Thank you to our donors, you truly do Stand for the Arts!

And thank you to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and The Patterson Foundation for your leadership and dedication to the community.

Our Executive Director Jim Shirley and his 4 Flat Jims were seen all over Sarasota County during the Giving Challenge.

This year the Giving Challenge raised more than $18 million for nearly 700 nonprofit organizations serving Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties on only 24 hours.

The unrestricted funds provide flexibility to respond to evolving community needs. A generous thank you to our partner The Patterson Foundation for strengthening the impact of your gift with a 1:1 matching opportunity.
