Clawback Recovery Challenge

October 2013 – September 2014

Clawback Recovery Challenge

The Purpose

Through no fault of their own, several organizations in Sarasota County, Florida, were unexpectedly affected by a clawback of funds. The Clawback Recovery Challenge helped those organizations raise funds through a recovery plan without disrupting their vital work in the community.

Strengthening the Impact

The Patterson Foundation worked with Girls Inc. of Sarasota County, Jewish Family & Children’s Service of the Suncoast, the Sarasota Opera, and the Diocese of Venice in Florida, matching up to $640,000 in donations made to these organizations to help them recover. Each organization created a recovery plan developed in collaboration with The Patterson Foundation, but all share a common goal: to continue providing the indispensable services they deliver to the community.
