SOSS2, Inc., needs your help. Your donation will be doubled by our Matching Fund as long as it is available. 


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
PO Box 15133
Sarasota, FL 34277


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.  

 Also you may donate in honor or in memory of a loved one.  Please provide this information in a note with your check or in PayPal. 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 $200, $100 and even $50 will go toward reaching our goal of raising an additional $100,000 to pay for our legal and expert fees.







Thanks to our Donors!
