The World Needs More Happy Places

The buildings we spend much of our lives in don’t just have an impact on the natural world and climate; they have a direct impact on our physical and emotional health and wellbeing too. At Southface Institute, as we work to increase the sustainability and health of homes, workplaces, and communities, we’re filling the world with more happy places — the kinds of places we need now more than ever.

Donate to Southface’s mission, and you’ll help increase and expand our positive impact on families and the environment.


No matter the amount, we appreciate your support. For more ways to create happy places this holiday season, DIY the following eco-friendly gifts:

Donation Information

Please note: Southface Institute, which includes Southface Sarasota at the Florida House as a wholly owned subsidiary, is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so your donations to us are tax deductible. Gifts of $1,000 or more will be listed in Southface’s annual report. Thank you for giving to Southface!

Planned Giving

The Southface Cornerstone Society honors and recognizes donors who have made plans to leave a legacy for Southface by including the organization in their estate plans.

It can be a gift of cash, assets or retirement funds, of a specific amount or a remaining percentage of the estate.

If you are a current supporter of Southface, a gift from your estate will enable your enthusiasm for our mission to endure and possibly facilitate greater giving than you thought possible.

If you are interested in learning more about the Cornerstone Society and planned giving opportunities, the Southface Development team would be happy to meet with you to talk about the organization’s long-term vision and the variety of ways to support our mission and work.
