The 36-Hour Giving Challenge Mar. 5- 6
USF Faculty and staff can support USF Sarasota-Manatee and help us raise money for scholarships and programs during the 36-Hour Giving Challenge from Tuesday, March 5 at 7:00 a.m. to Wednesday, March 6 at 7:00 p.m. All you have to do is CLICK, SHARE & SHOP.
This special opportunity is available to organizations with a complete profile in The Giving Partner, an online tool sharing in-depth information about local charities that helps donors and funders make more informed decisions about their philanthropy.
To participate, simply go online to www.givingpartnerchallenge.org, during the 36-hours, search for “USF” and make a secure, tax-deductible donation of $25 or more with your credit card. You will also be able to link directly to this address from our website homepage. SHARE your generosity and let your social media contacts know about your gift.
Along with making a gift--which could be matched by local foundations until the matching funds run out-- you can also help support USFSM by just visiting USFSM.edu/Click during the 36-hour Giving Challenge and then sharing that link with all of your friends on social media. There are incentive prizes for the greatest number of unique click-throughs to profiles…with just a CLICK, USFSM could qualify for additional funds.
You can also SHOP at The Furniture Warehouse from Tuesday March 5 at 7 a.m. to Wednesday March 6 at 7 p.m. During The Giving Challenge, you’ll receive a discount on qualified purchases and our friends at the Furniture Warehouse will donate a portion of sales to USFSM.
The 36-Hour Giving Challenge is made possible by presenting partners the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and The Patterson Foundation, with support from Gulf Coast Community Foundation, Manatee Community Foundation, Charlotte Community Foundation, and the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation.
No matter how you chose to participate, if you CLICK, SHARE & SHOP, USFSM will have great success during The Giving Challenge!
