11 Local Banks Issue a $30,000 Nonprofit GoodGiving Guide Challenge

A challenge is going out to the 108 central Kentucky nonprofits participating in the GoodGiving Guide Challenge. The 2013 Bankers Challenge, a $30,000 donor match challenge, begins noon on Thursday, November 21 and goes until the matching money runs out. Potential for nonprofits to yield $90,000

 “The GoodGiving Guide Challenge is an opportunity for the entire community–individuals and businesses alike–to come together in support of local causes,” said Lisa Adkins, President and CEO of Blue Grass Community Foundation. “Kudos to central Kentucky banks for setting such a powerful example of what can be accomplished when we work together.”

Beginning noon on Thursday, November 21, individual donations from $10 to $1,000 are eligible for a 50 cent match on every dollar donated until the $30,000 match pool is exhausted. This means a donor making a $50 contribution will earn a $25 Banker’s Challenge match, which equals $75 for the nonprofit.  The $30,000 challenge will leverage another $60,000 in local giving, yielding $90,000 unrestricted, general operating dollars for local nonprofits.

Eligible donor contributions cannot exceed $1,000 per nonprofit. All qualifying gifts must be made through
