2015 Chairman’s Challenge

We’re thrilled to bring back the Chairman’s Challenge for its third year in a row. We’re continuing the Challenge’s pivotal mission to help build participating affiliates’ community grantmaking funds to help meet local needs.

This effort is making a difference. Over the last two years, more than $500,000 has been raised for grantmaking in communities we serve across the state.

We acknowledge the generosity of First Citizens Bank and other anonymous donors who have enabled us to apply a challenge match for funds that affiliates raise for their local endowments. This means that every gift made to a participating local affiliate’s community grantmaking fund in November will receive a proportional share of the challenge match grant.

We invite you to support a local community close to your heart through the Chairman’s Challenge.
