To Goodwill Manasota
Life of a Donation
Your Donations Impact
Through the generosity of the Louis & Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust, “Ignite the Match” has been extended to 2022! This year, we have another opportunity to leverage the power of philanthropic giving through the Goodwill-Flanzer “Ignite the Match” partnership. This means that every donation between $5 and $500 will be doubled. If you give monthly, your gift will be matched each month by the Flanzer Trust.
Louis and Gloria Flanzer exemplified philanthropic leadership in Sarasota, generously sharing their time and donations with many local nonprofit organizations. We are thankful for the Flanzers’ vision, spirit of collaboration, and commitment to our community that continues their legacy of giving.

Thank you to the gentlemen who helped me today. Dropping off donations I got a bit emotional. These gentlemen brought our bags back out and searched with me till we found them. Just talking it out with them made my heart heal just a little more. Thank you again for your kindness and empathy. - CC
