Save the Date! 24 Hours Only….Be the One!
From 12:00 noon on May 1 through 11:59:59 am on May 2, 2018, individuals and businesses will have a rare and unique opportunity to donate to the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center and have your donations (minimum $25/maximum $100) matched 1:1 by the philanthropic Patterson Foundation. Your matched contributions will help us keep environmental education and preservation at the forefront of our service to the greater Charlotte Harbor area/community.
There is no limit to the number of individual matches from unique donors CHEC can receive during the 2018 Giving Challenge. This is a venue in which small donors can make a huge difference. During this 24 hour online event, simply go to www.givingpartnerchallenge.org and type Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center in the “Find an Organization” search box in the upper right hand corner of the page. Click on our name to bring up the donation page for CHEC. Follow the directions to donate online. Please don’t hesitate to call us at 941-575-5435 during office hours on May 1 & 2 if you need assistance. Alternatively, come in to the admin building at 10941 Burnt Store Road, Punta Gorda, 33955, during the event/office hours and we'll help you submit your donation!
Many thanks to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for presenting and allowing us to participate in the Giving Challenge 2018, and to the very generous Patterson Foundation, which has, since 2012, provided $11.9 million for the Giving Challenge through matching donations and other donor incentives.
