challenge for charities
In order to achieve the Lander Community Foundation’s mission of promoting philanthropy and creating a stronger Lander community, the foundation sponsors the annual Challenge for Charities, a community-wide fundraiser, that culminates in the Lander Half Marathon, 5K and Kids' 1-mile Mad Dash.
The Challenge for Charities fundraiser helped 34 participating nonprofits raise a record-breaking $231,195 between May 1 and July 10. The 2017 Challenger matching pool raised $94,700. The Foundation distributed $326,613 to local nonprofits organizations at Lander Live in August, which equates to a 50% match for 2017!
Over the past seven years, nearly 1.8 million dollars has been raised for Lander-area nonprofits by Lander Community Foundation’s Challenge for Charities.
