Support Lemon Bay Conservancy And Triple Your Impact!
The 2022 Giving Challenge is now complete. Thank you to everyone who supported LBC!
This was our best Giving Challenge result ever! 148 donors contributed $13,705. That was matched by $11,255 from The Patterson Foundation and $13,705 from our anonymous LBC donor, for a total of $38,665!
A special thanks to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for hosting this event and to our matching donors!
From noon-to-noon, April 26-27, Lemon Bay Conservancy (LBC) will join 700+ area non-profits participating in the Giving Challenge. During this 24-hour window, you have a unique opportunity to leverage your support for LBC!
Donations to LBC from $25 to $100 will be matched 1:1 by The Patterson Foundation and 1:1 by an anonymous LBC donor. So, your $25 gift becomes $75 or your $100 gift becomes $300.
The matching funds apply to each individual donor or company. So, the 2:1 match will apply to donations up to $100 from each family member!
For donations over $100, the special LBC match continues at 1:1 until LBC receives a total of $25,000 in donations!
Donations must be made online, via credit or debit card, during the 24-hour Giving Challenge. If more than one individual is donating from a family, please use separate names, emails, and credit/debit cards to ensure that each donor will have their gift fully matched.
