Manatee millennials to be put to test at Giving Challenge

The Manatee County Community Foundation and the Knight Foundation have put up $20,000 in the form of nine separate grants to nine winning Manatee not-for-profits that let a millennial lead their campaigns for the Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s Giving Challenge. The Challenge is a huge, four-county, 24-hour donation push on Sept. 20-21. Three of those Manatee millennials say they are raring to go.
