The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne announces the start of the 2023 #GivingTuesdayFW Challenge. The #GivingTuesday FW Challenge is a nonprofit sustainability challenge for #GivingTuesday in an effort to help raise funds for nonprofit endowments. Starting Wednesday, November 1, 2023, and running through Monday, November 20, 2023, at 11:59 pm, the Community Foundation challenges all nonprofits that hold endowment funds at the Community Foundation to raise money for their endowments to increase their financial sustainability.
The Community Foundation will match gifts that are contributed to eligible funds by 20%, and the five top-raising organizations (one in each giving area: Connected Community, Inspiring Places, Everyone’s Economy, Lifelong Learning, and Healthy Mind & Body) will receive a surprise unrestricted gift from the Community Foundation on #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2023.
