Giving Challenges

Matching challenge grants are a tried and true method to drawing in new funders, while maximizing donations from existing supporters. And they often result in revenue that exceeds the initial challenge.
The Giving List has created a pooled fund wherein donors can offer challenge grants to participating nonprofits in the physical books and online.
Please look at some of those evolving challenges BELOW.
And if you are a donor interested in creating a match to amplify your giving, please reach out to us directly.
