The Woman's Exchange of Sarasota is a non-profit organization with a central purpose to support and enrich a variety of programs for local cultural organizations. Funds for this purpose are realized through a consignment operation where merchandise is accepted either for donation or consignment to be sold in its store. Grants and Scholarships derived from the earnings of this store are used to enrich and strengthen arts-related programs and to encourage creativity in organizations and individuals throughout the community.
Supporting the arts for half a century, the Woman's Exchange is a self-sustaining organization of vital importance to the community. Through its vast consignment operation, supported by 260 volunteers and over 5000 consignors, the Woman's Exchange will sell more merchandise than any other such operation in the state of Florida; awarding more than $7 million since its inception in 1962. The primary vision of the Woman's Exchange is to touch the heart and stimulate the creative mind of every adult and child in Sarasota and Manatee Counties, through its financial support of a large and artistically diverse group of organizations, as well as student who aspire to be the world's next generation of cultural influence. Further, the organization is proud to be a Sarasota County "Green Business Partner", dedicated to keeping area landfills debris free.
