Are you up for the challenge?
On the heels of the success of our fall 2015 season, The Givens Foundation has received a new momentum booster.
The Pohlad Family Foundation has awarded The Givens Foundation a $10,000 challenge grant, to match contributions from new and nearly new donors (those who haven’t given in the last 3 years). We have until the end of October to raise the $10,000. So if you haven’t donated before and are thinking about it, now's a great time, because your contribution will be matched, whether you make a one-time gift or — even better — become a monthly donor.
Sincere thanks to The Pohlad Family Foundation for this show of support for The Givens Foundation’s fundraising efforts, and to all of you who help us reach the goal.
CHOOSE HOW YOU'D LIKE TO MAKE YOUR SECURE DONATION:
During the Challenge Drive all donations from new donors will be doubled. Make a gift of $50, and your contribution will be matched with an additional $50 —making a total of $100 available to provide free writing workshops for teens and adults.
Are you already a Givens supporter? You can make a big impact. Make a gift of $50 and bring along a new Givens donor for another gift of $50, and the Challenge Grant will add $50 to the mix — making a total of $150 available to provide free writing workshops and bring diverse books to classrooms.
You have two easy options to help us meet the Challenge Drive goal:
Option 2: If you have 5 minutes, your gift can triple, quadruple or more. Start a fundraising page, make a donation, and every gift from a new donor you raise earns a 1:1 match from the Challenge Grant.
