It's About People
Sarasota, Florida is full of accomplished and driven people — some find the spotlight while others quietly go about their business as they move and mold the world around them. They all inspire us by redefining, reinventing, defying convention, improving community and just getting good things done.
GIVE Sarasota Published by Beaver Shriver of The Shriver Group, GIVE Sarasota is an upscale magazine and ongoing online platform that celebrates Sarasota, Florida’s philanthropists — the visionaries, the creative innovators, the leaders, the Givers and their favorite charities. An annual magazine with a focus on philanthropy and giving.
GIVE Sarasota also serves as a means for the Givers to introduce and solicit support for their favorite charities.
Do Good Work
In addition to recognizing Sarasota's Givers and following in the Shriver family tradition of serving others, a big part of this project's mission is philanthropic. Every Giver listed in the book and on this website has selected a favorite charity to feature and has pledged $6,000 to that cause. The Shriver Group will coordinate these pledges for a total donation of $180,000 in 2017.
We have provided each Giver's favorite charity with a free listing in the book as well as a page and link on this website.
“It is well to be prepared for life as it is, but it is better to be prepared to make life better than it is.”
Serve, serve, serve!
Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver dedicated their lives to helping others and we strive to do the same.
From such programs as Head Start, VISTA, Job Corps, Community Action, Upward Bound, Foster Grandparents, Special Olympics, the National Center on Poverty Law, Legal Services, and the Peace Corps, Sargent and Eunice were driven to serve.
Beaver Shriver has continued the Shriver tradition by giving his time and financial support to many organizations, and GIVE Sarasota is his latest charitable project.

"Serve and give. We are here but for a short time — roll up your sleeves and open your heart."
