The results of RISE to the Challenge are in! Due to your generosity and the thoughtful contributions of 213 other donors, our “$100k for 100Kids” campaign raised an amazing $181,461! We will now be able to support over 180 children and youth in 2021 with our expanded, innovative programming.
We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from your individual, foundation, and corporate identities—especially in the final weeks of RISE to the Challenge—and were touched by your heartwarming notes of encouragement. Thank you to every donor who contributed and everyone who helped us to grow our community.
