The 2018 Giving Challenge

The Giving Challenge is an exciting 24-hour giving event supporting more than 625 nonprofits serving Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties.

People who care about causes in our community can go online at and make a secure donation to Venice Area Beautification Inc., and help us receive special matching dollars and grant incentives.

Each one of us has the potential to impact a person, a cause, a community. In May, you can be the one to make a difference by supporting VABI during the 2018 Giving Challenge.
