2023 affiliate fundraising challenge a success

For the 11th year, our 53 affiliate foundations across the state participated in an annual fundraising challenge, each receiving a proportional match from NCCF for gifts made toward their community grantmaking funds.  

Called the Chairman’s Challenge, this effort raised over $715,000 in contributions toward community grantmaking in 2023. Since it began in 2013, Chairman’s Challenge has generated more than $6.1 million in gifts. All money raised during this campaign supports the community grantmaking funds of our affiliates, increasing their local impact.  

As affiliate grantmaking kicks off for 2024 with the first applications opening for nonprofits on March 1, we know these contributions will go a long way toward building philanthropic support and improving lives in each community we serve. 

We are so grateful to all our affiliate advisory board members for their participation and leadership, and to our many Chairman’s Challenge donors and fundholders who contributed to the campaign.
