Most of the Roskamp Institute’s funding comes from grant funding and the general public — people like you. Your gift makes a difference in the lives of people facing diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Head Trauma, Drug Addiction, Cancer and Tourette’s Syndrome. Your contribution to the not-for-profit (501[c]3) Roskamp Institute is tax deductible and supports research to improve treatment and to ultimately develop a cure for these devastating diseases.

If you contribute to the Roskamp Institute by participating in the 36-Hour Giving Challenge at Giving Partner Challenge 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.

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.

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.
