MCF Donors & Nonprofits Celebrate Giving

img_6202Manatee Community Foundation was a proud participant in the Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s 2016 Giving Challenge, hosting a 24 hour “Giving Room” for local donors and nonprofits serving our community.

MCF contributed dollars to the grant prizes to be awarded and partnered with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation on a “Manatee Millennial Challenge,” encouraging nonprofits to appoint young volunteers, donors, and staff members to lead their Giving Challenge campaigns.

The event raised more than $13 million, including $7 million in matching dollars from The Patterson Foundation, which matched all new donor gifts 2:1 up to $100 and all returning donor gifts 1:1 up to $100.
