The Giving Partner

The Giving Partner is an online tool published by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County to encourage donors, foundations, businesses, and media partners to make informed choices about their giving.

More than 800 nonprofit profiles of organizations serving Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte and DeSoto counties are published and viewable to the public. An organization with an updated profile has taken the time to showcase its transparency as well as its needs, governance, management, finances, and programmatic impact.
