The 2016 Giving Challenge has ended. Thank you to all of our donors who helped us raise over $33,000!
The Ringling is proud to support the Community Foundation of Sarasota and the 2016 Giving Challenge, September 20 & 21, 2016. We believe each one of us has the ability to impact another person, a cause, a community. Be the one!
To strengthen giving during the 2016 Giving Challenge, The Patterson Foundation will provide a 2:1 match for contributions from new donors for donations up to $100 per new donor, per organization. Additionally, it will provide a 1:1 match for contributions from returning donors – for donations up to $100 per donor, per organization.
This year, The Ringling is raising funds to restore one of the beautiful pieces that has been tucked away for some time now; a stunning early 18th century Italian oil painting that once boasted brightly colored, whimsical caricatures in incredible detail. Our goal is to restore this masterpiece to its original splendor. Every dollar raised through the Giving Challenge will go towards the restoration process.
