Thank You to our many supporters!

With your generosity, we have worked together to make our first giving challenge truly successful. We had 80 donors give over $5,000, and with the matching incentives raised a total of $15,275! We couldn't have done it without your help, and truly thank you for supporting the Cortez Village Historical Society and our new Cultural Center. We look forward to exciting programs in the future!

September 20-20, 2016


On September 20 – September 21, 2016 from noon to noon, the Cortez Village Historical Society via The Giving Partner will engage our community in a 24-hour online day of giving.

Your contributions to CVHS during these two days will be matched 2 to 1 meaning you will make even more of an impact.

$25 donated = $75 received!
$100 donated = $300 received!!

CVHS needs your financial support! Visit the Cultural Center and learn about your community: from geneaology to fishing, historic village to political hotspot. Your donation on this special day will allow CVHS to continue to the good work in Cortez.

Put this event on your calendar and plan to make an online contribution. This special matching contribution link will be available only on September 20 and 21, 2016, from noon to noon. You may donate at other times, but for these 24 hours, your money will go SO much further.

The program is administered by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. Your donation is 100% tax deductible, and you will receive an immediate email receipt from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.

If you do not want to donate online but want to support the Cortez Village Historical Society and the Cortez Cultural Center, we will gladly accept your donation at any time. Your donation will not qualify for a match.

The 2016 Giving Challenge is presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation, as well as support from Manatee Community Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, and the Herald-Tribune Media Group.
