Blue Grass Community Foundation is excited to be back for the sixth annual GoodGiving Challenge. Great things happen in a giving community, and donating to your favorite causes has never been easier! Select your charities, grab your credit card (or this year for the first time PayPal is an option, too), and give online starting at 9 a.m., Tuesday, November 29.
At the Community Foundation, it’s our mission to make charitable giving fun, rewarding and accessible, and the GoodGiving Challenge is one way do this. We sincerely thank you for joining with us. Because of the generosity of you — our neighbors, friends and colleagues — since 2011 the GoodGiving Challenge has raised an amazing $5.5 million for local charities. With more than 120 nonprofits in this year’s Challenge, the sky’s the limit on what we can raise by investing together for our community.
At the Community Foundation, endowment building is our core business. We know that endowment funds — permanent charitable capital — are investments in our community’s future. They are the best way to ensure a nonprofit’s sustainability since they provide yearly operating dollars, in perpetuity. Endowments are key in making sure the stellar nonprofits serving our community today will be here tomorrow and for generations to come.
In recognition of the importance of endowment building, the Community Foundation’s GoodGiving Endowment Pool will, once again, provide at least twenty $5,000 endowment prizes to high-performing nonprofits. Thanks to our generous supporters for help making it possible.
