Foundation challenges five Quad-City nonprofits to raise $15,000 each


Five Quad-City non-profit organizations can access a matching $15,000 grant from the Quad Cities Community Foundation after they raise $15,000.

The organizations must raise the $15,000 through new or increased giving from other sources from now until Dec. 31.

The 2018 Community Impact Fund Challenge Grants provide flexible funds, said Lisa Stachula, grant-making specialist, who oversees the foundation's application-based grants.

“What’s very special and unique about this challenge grant is that the nonprofits can spend the money they raise on anything, which is not common,” she said. “They can use it for general operating support. They can do whatever they want with it.”
