Double Your Donation

You can double your donation to One More Child in support of the vulnerable children and struggling families we serve during the 2024 Giving Challenge at 12 p.m. on April 9-10, 2024. Here’s how to double the impact of your financial contribution to One More Child…

What is the Giving Challenge?

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County hosts this online giving event, connects approximately 700 nonprofit organizations with passionate donors and community members, and is a rallying point for diverse causes. 

The Patterson Foundation will match unique gifts between $25 and $100 made to One More Child through the Giving Challenge website during the 24 hours on a dollar-for-dollar basis. 

More about the Patterson Foundation’s match.

The Giving Challenge is more than just a fundraising event. It acts as a connection catalyst for meaningful relationships and partnerships while providing $75 million in unrestricted funding to nonprofits over eight challenges since 2012.  

What Are You Contributing To?

For One More Child, the Giving Challenge is a critical opportunity to impact the lives of vulnerable children. Children like 15-year-old trafficking survivor Lanita,* who faced numerous challenges throughout her teenage years.

Struggling with substance misuse, strained family ties, mental health issues, and a series of runaway episodes, Lanita’s life took a difficult turn when she was groomed by older men online and eventually exploited.  

Finally, Lanita found support and guidance when she connected with One More Child’s Anti-Trafficking team. With the dedicated assistance of a therapist, advocate, and mentor, Lanita accomplished significant milestones, including securing her first job, making strides while on probation, and establishing a supportive network of friends.  

Currently working towards her GED, with plans to attend cosmetology school, Lanita has taken back control of her life and is pushing forward on her path to healing.

One More Child is a private, faith-based, 501(c)3 organization that has been providing life-changing services to vulnerable children and struggling families since 1904. Last year, the organization provided direct care services to 250,259 children and individuals and nearly 20 million meals nationally and globally. All of this was possible because more than 140,000 individuals said “yes” to training, volunteering, and awareness efforts. 

But reaching one more child and family is impossible without generous supporters like you and community partners like the Patterson Foundation.
