2018 Giving Challenge

The Giving Challenge is an exciting 24-hour ONLINE event made possible because of generous donors who will match YOUR donation, up to $100, when you donate online between May 1-2, noon to noon to the Chalk Festival.

The Chalk Festival is only made possible because of so many wonderful people, like you, willing to do their part, so collectively, we all can do a lot.  Your donation will help us provide free tickets to the underprivileged, host artists locally and from around the world, host group projects, renovate the world record, and create the 2018 Chalk Festival November 9 - 12 giving tribute to the marvels of the natural world and the human imagination. 

The Giving Challenge is Presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation, as well as support from Charlotte Community Foundation, Harbor Style, Herald Tribune Media Group, iHeart Media, John S. and James L Knight Foundation, Manatee Community Foundation, William G. and Marie Selby Foundation and Suncoast News Network.
