Flanzer Trust

The Louis and Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust, which launched its Contribution Matching Program in January 2020, recently announced that it sent $3.145 million to agencies in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto Counties, matching $1,572,713 in contributions from 6,500 donors.

The purpose of the Flanzer Contribution Matching Program is to inspire locals across the Suncoast to make a difference in their communities through meaningful gifts to key nonprofit organizations that result in greater opportunities for those who need assistance the most. The average donation of the 2020 program was $240; the Flanzer Trust recently extended the matching program through 2021, and it will begin on Jan. 8. Contributions between $5 and $500 will be matched 1:1.
