Big Match Challenge
In 2019 an anonymous donor partnered with the Northeast Women & Girls Fund to establish their first three-year challenge, which incorporates both matching funds to grow the endowment, and immediate use funds to supplement annual grantmaking to area nonprofits.
We are continuing to build the Fund, and in year two of the Big Match Challenge our goal is to raise $25,000 to receive a $50,000 challenge contribution toward the endowment and an additional $5000 to supplement grantmaking. The needs of our vulnerable women and girls are already on the rise due to the pandemic and the resulting economic effects, so this additional funding will bring a beacon of hope and light the way toward a better tomorrow for women, girls and their families in Northeastern Connecticut.
As of 9/18/2020 we have raised 81% of our goal, for a total of $20,270.
