Giving Challenge

Go to

Last year we had our own internal Giving Challenge, but this school year the Patterson Foundation and the local Community Foundations are offering another official GIVING CHALLENGE! Over the past five years, BCS has raised over $400,000 from the official Giving Challenge and nearly half of this funding was “FREE MONEY” that was granted to BCS because of your participation. Our local Sarasota and Manatee County Foundations and the Patterson Foundation offer matching funds and grants during this 24 hour time period. Be ready to help BCS be on top again. Please contact Heidi Sikkema at or 941-792-5454 x 160.
