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 39 participating nonprofits raise a record-breaking $274,000 between May 1 and July 10. The 2018 Challenger matching pool raised $112,000 and 9 nonprofits raised over the maximum match level of $10,000! The Foundation was able to distribute checks totaling over $386,000 to local nonprofits organizations at the Lander Live event in August. This equated to a 52% match for 2018!
Over the past eight years, over 2.1 million dollars has been raised for Lander-area nonprofits by Lander Community Foundation’s Challenge for Charities.
