The Giving Challenge/ Busting at the Seams
Planning & Development Director
Last fall many of you generously donated to our fundraiser to pay for improvements to our facility. Through the Community Foundation of Sarasota and their Giving Challenge Program, your donations allowed us to raise $84,000 to use towards PGICA’s “Busting at the Seams” project. For a summary of the many improvements we were able to make with these funds.
The “Shop Punta Gorda” program offers PGICA members discounts on products and services. Currently there are 72 businesses participating.
