We can instantly double your donation!

I bet when someone emails you an offer to instantly double your money, you either don’t open it, delete it or send it directly to the recycle bin.

Please don’t delete this email!

If you contribute to the Roskamp Institute by participating in the 36-Hour Giving Challenge at anytime between March 27 at 6 am and March 28 at 6 pm, your donation stands a great chance of being matched penny for penny. But of course, there are always some rules.

Here are the ways you can double your gift and your impact:

  • Get a 1:1 match for your donation (up to $1,000), until matching funding of $334,000 is exhausted. (We will be competing with 103 other nonprofits for this match.)
  • Get an additional 1:1 match for your donation (up to $1,000), from matching funds that will be contributed by the private Roskamp Foundation (available only for gifts to the Roskamp Institute) until their matching funding of $50,000 is exhausted.
  • Help us get a special grant for attracting the most donors. (We can win up to $20,000 by having the most unique donors give $25 or more to us.)
  • Help us earn one of 20 grants for being among the first nonprofits to have 50 donors donate $50 or more.
  • One random donor per hour will receive an additional $250 added to his/her donation. That could be you!
  • You can help us get one of two $5,000 grants by visiting our profile on during the challenge.
  • Special matches will be announced during last five hours of challenge. Follow The Giving Partner at

Only nonprofits with complete profiles in The Giving Partner, a local online tool helping donors make more informed decisions about their charitable giving, can participate in this special challenge and that includes the Roskamp Institute. You can check out our profile anytime at

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County, Gulf Coast Community Foundation, and Manatee Community Foundation—with the support of The Patterson Foundation—have partnered to launch The Giving Partner and to make the 36-Hour Giving Challenge possible.

The Roskamp Foundation, a private foundation established by Bob and Diane Roskamp to administer all their philanthropic work in Sarasota and throughout the country. The Foundation has pledged to match all gifts to the Institute dollar for dollar that come in during the 36-Hour Giving Challenge, up to a maximum total of $50,000.

The money raised through the Giving Challenge will be used to further our research and will make a significant difference in the lives of people facing diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease, head trauma, Gulf War Syndrome, Autism, drug addiction and Tourette’s Syndrome.

All donations must be made online. When you are ready to make your donation on March 27, go to, enter Roskamp in the box at the upper right where it says “Search for Organizations” and then click Search. You will then go to a page with the Institute’s information which you will click on and the donation form will appear.

However, you can make your pledge right now and you won’t have to get up at 6:00 a.m. Just click right here to go directory to our website, then click on the button that says DONATE and we’ll process your donation for you between March 27, 6 a.m. and March 28, 6 p.m.

Thank you for your gift to the Roskamp Institute to help us continue our very important work. If you have any questions or if you would like to make your donation right now over the phone, please call me directly at 941-752-2949 extension 390.
