Giving Challenge 16

GC16 Logo GreenThe Giving Challenge is a 24-hour fundraising event like no other! 

Your donation to Designing Women Boutique during the 2016 Giving Challenge will be eligible to be TRIPLED!!


 What is the 24-hour Giving Challenge?

The 24-Hour Giving Challenge is a 24-hour online giving event beginning on Sept 20th at noon and ending on Sept 21st at noon. Your donation of $25 or more will be combined with matching funds and special grants to multiply your donation dollars.

During the 2016 Giving Challenge, The Patterson Foundation will provide:

  • 2:1 match for each new online donor’s contributions – up to $100 per new donor, per organization. (Because this is our first time participating in the Giving Challenge, all our donations will be considered new and matched 2:1.)
  • 1:1 match for each returning donor’s contribution – up to $100 per donor, per organization

There is no limit to the amount of matching dollars available.

How will Designing Women Boutique benefit from this event?

  1. The top 10 organizations with the MOST donors will receive grants ranging from $1,000 – $7,000.
  2. The FIRST 50 nonprofits to get 50 donors to give $50 or more will receive a grant of $500.
  3. One random donor’s gift EVERY HOUR will be increased by $100.


Please remember, even a $25 minimum donation can be the one to help us win up to $7,000!!!!
