2018 GIVING CHALLENGE
BE THE ONE
The 2018 Giving Challenge takes place from noon Tuesday, May 1 to noon Wednesday, May 2. Show your support for local nonprofits and Lemon Bay Playhouse by participating in the giving challenge and make a difference by supporting the nonprofit you love – BE THE ONE.
For this year’s Giving Challenge any donation of $25 or more are accepted online at www.givingpartnerchallenge.org and are 100% tax-deductible. To strengthen giving during the 2018 Giving Challenge, The Patterson Foundation will provide a 1:1 match for all unique donations, up to $100 per donor, per organization. There is no limit to the number of individual matches from unique donors a nonprofit can receive during the 2018 Giving Challenge. Security for the online donations for the Giving Challenge are provided through KIMBIA to each donor entering their own credit card information directly on the giving site.
The last Giving Challenge event (September, 2016) set a new standard for generosity in our community, when more than $13.4 million was raised in just 24 hours to benefit 559 nonprofits listed on The Giving Partner.
During that Giving Challenge Lemon Bay Playhouse received 60 gifts totaling $4,310 before matching. With the 1:1 matching from the Patterson Foundation your donations gave us a total of $8,620. Any donation of $25 are accepted on the website and all gifts up to $100.00 per donor qualify for 1:1 matching from the Patterson Foundation. More details about the donations to Lemon Bay Playhouse for the last Giving Challenge may be found in the October-November, 2016 issue of the Spotlight.
The Giving Challenge represents an opportunity to make your donations to Lemon Bay Playhouse go further than ever. Last year, the money we raised, was used to help pay some of the costs for the new roof. This year’s donations will be used to help offset the cost of the paving the parking lot. Visit www.TheGivingPartner.org to learn more about each nonprofit’s programmatic impact, leadership, planning, financials and needs.
