The Giving Partner is a powerful online resource presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. This tool helps donors, funders, and community members understand more about nonprofits in our region and discover how to engage in the causes they care about most.

The Giving Partner was launched in 2012 as a collaborative effort of local foundations. Founding members included the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, Gulf Coast Community Foundation, Manatee Community Foundation, and The Patterson Foundation. 

Since then, more than 800 nonprofits in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties have demonstrated their commitment to transparency and created a profile, sharing in-depth information about their impact, financial health, leadership, and organizational needs.
