The Giving Partner

The intersection of community and philanthropy.

Residents in our community have many choices about where to use their time, talent and treasure. The Giving Partner helps donors make more informed decisions about giving based on in-depth information provided by local nonprofits.

The Giving Partner is an online tool populated with in-depth information about more than 700 charitable organizations serving Charlotte, DeSoto, Manatee and Sarasota counties. Nonprofits voluntarily upload information into the tool and update it annually. Each nonprofit profile includes the 501(c)(3) organization’s legal name and information about its core mission, programmatic impact, governance, management and financials. There is no grading, rating or certification of nonprofits, but the “Reviewed by Your Community Foundation” icon associated with a profile means that the organization answered each required question and key information was validated by foundation staff.

Your profile online at helps local funders, donors and citizen philanthropists understand more about your work in the community, along with your needs, financial history, governing body and management structure.

Let us know how we can get your organization started with a profile in The Giving Partner, or if you have new staff or board members we can update about the why's and how's of The Giving Partner. Send us an email for more information or to get started on your profile.

The next "Giving Challenge" - a 24-hour day of online giving - will be held April 28 - 29, 2020.
