We Stand for the Arts!

The Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County is proud to Stand for the Arts! We do this by supporting arts in education, advocating for local organizations, providing grants, and promoting programming.

Will you be the one to stand for the arts by donating to the Arts and Cultural Alliance during the 2020 Giving Challenge, April 29-29, Noon – Noon?

What is the Giving Challenge?

The Giving Challenge is an exciting online 24-hour giving event that connects 700+ nonprofit organizations with passionate donors to support diverse causes and create enduring impact in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties. Being a part of the Giving Challenge transforms people and organizations through meaningful relationships and partnerships. Join our vibrant culture of giving and maximize your potential impact from Noon to Noon, April 28-29.

While we are monitoring the evolving situation in our community, we’d like to share that the 2020 Giving Challenge is first and foremost an online giving event, and it remains scheduled April 28-29. The 2020 Giving Challenge will be one of several grant-funding tools available to help with our community’s evolving response to the coronavirus pandemic, as the unrestricted funds raised during the Giving Challenge provide our nonprofit partners flexibility to respond to community needs, especially as those needs evolve or change.

The Giving Challenge is hosted by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation.
