The Community Foundation of Sarasota County, The Patterson Foundation, Herald Tribune Media Group and other local nonprofit organizations are strengthening the annual Season of Sharing campaign as an initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with matching gift opportunities up to $500,000 from The Patterson Foundation. When the match is fulfilled by the community, there will be $1.5 million total in additional funds for distribution in the four-county region of Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties to aid in the community’s response. Season of Sharing just celebrated its 20th anniversary year. In the 2019-2020 campaign, more than 3,000 gifts contributed to over $2.5 million raised in funds, bringing the 20-year total to nearly $24 million.
