As a centralized nonprofit directory for year-round exploration and giving, The Giving Partner is a trusted resource for grantmakers and other entities for philanthropic research. This searchable database contains over 700 profiles of 501(c)(3), or specific 501(c)(4), charitable organizations serving Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties. Each profile reflects an organization’s commitment to transparency including programmatic results, leadership, financial health and more.

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County reviews each profile for completeness; however, we depend on our nonprofit partners for the accuracy of the information. A profile with a Current status signifies that the required content was provided (this is not a grade, rating or certification).
