WOW, WOW, WOW! The Challenge Grant has been met in record time
Well, that happened fast. We've always known that Quad Citizens are generous. And this week, you reinforced that yet again.
On April 1, we challenged our community to give generously to the 100+ nonprofit agency funds held at the Quad Cities Community Foundation in celebration of our 55th year of transforming the region through the generosity of people like you.
The $75,000 earmarked from our Community Impact Fund to be matched through our 2019 Challenge Grant opportunity has been expended in record time. In fact, the dollars given to Nonprofit Endowment Funds will far surpass the matching dollars.
We are overwhelmed by your commitment to raising endowment dollars for the benefit of nonprofits you care about. Your gifts will have an impact today, and forever.
Even though the matching dollars have been expended, you can still give to one of the Nonprofit Endowment Funds you wish to support today, or any day. These endowments help to ensure that our nonprofits can continue to have flexible, reliable funding that makes their nonprofits stronger.
Be on the lookout for more reasons to celebrate. We'll share some of the incredible results from this match, and be notifying the organizations who received gifts to their Nonprofit Endowment Funds in the near future.
