Take the OCF Challenge!
November 22, 2016
This holiday season, thanks to a generous $100,000 challenge grant from Oregon Community Foundation, gifts made to Eugene Civic Alliance will have a greater impact. The grant provides ECA with an exciting opportunity to double the impact of donors’ gifts by matching them with funds from the grant. In other words, every gift given to ECA during our year-end fundraiser will be matched by Oregon Community Foundation, up to $100,000! That means that a $100 would be matched by the grant, doubling the gift to $200.
The year-end “OCF Challenge” fundraiser will kick-off on #GivingTuesday. Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving weekend and the widely recognized commercial shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The event celebrates the holiday giving season and inspires people to give to the charities and causes they support in their local communities.
This year will mark the the second year that ECA has participated in #GivingTuesday. In addition to each gift being matched by the OCF grant, the OCF Challenge campaign will also feature contests, donor prizes, and more. Check back here each week for an updated schedule of events for the campaign.
