SOSS2, Inc., needs your help.


We need to raise more funds to assist us with further legal representation and technical support.  So far we have spent about $95,000 on legal fees and expert consulting. We need to raise  another $30,000 +.  Help us preserve navigation in Big Pass and protect Siesta Key beaches, businesses and residents' property from the northern end of the key to Point of Rocks.

You can make your tax deductible donation in two different ways:

Make your check out to SOSS2, Inc. (a 501(c)3 corporation) and send to:

SOSS2, Inc.
5300 Ocean Blvd. STE 201
Sarasota FL 34242


Please include your email address with your check so we can acknowledge your contribution for tax purposes. Also if your phone # is not on your check, please include that as well.  

If you wish to remain anonymous, please indicate your request with your check.

You can also make a tax free donation via secure Paypal donation on your Visa, Mastercard or American Express cards. There are some major contribution categories listed below but lesser donations of $100, $50 and even $25 will go toward reaching our goal of raising an additional $30,000+.
