2015 marks the 8th year for the annual Tin Cup Challenge and beginning on Friday, May 22 through Monday, July 27, 2015, the Community Foundation of Teton Valley will be accepting donations benefitting participating local nonprofits. According to Carrie Mowrey, Community Foundation Executive Director, “The Tin Cup Challenge is truly unique in that it helps to leverage the funds raised by our local nonprofits with matching funds provided by our Challengers. This promotes a culture of generosity in our community and encourages everyone to give to their favorite nonprofits during the Tin Cup Challenge giving period.”
Serving as both a 9-week giving period and a one day celebration of the community’s spirit of generosity, the Tin Cup Challenge has raised over $7 million in just 7 years for Teton Valley nonprofits and over $1 million each year for the last 4 years. Donors interested in supporting their favorite nonprofits during the 8th Annual Tin Cup Challenge can do so with one transaction, either online at www.tincupchallenge.org or by check using the donor form included in the 8th Annual Tin Cup Challenge brochure, which is available throughout Teton Valley. The Community Foundation of Teton Valley will process your gift, ensuring that 100% of your contribution is given to the organizations you choose.
“Each year, I am privileged to witness the overwhelming generosity of our community members at every level during the Tin Cup Challenge,” said Mowrey. This year, the Community Foundation of Teton Valley invites all community members to join in their efforts to raise funds for the important work of local nonprofits that make Teton Valley a better place for us all to live, work and play. Through generosity, every donor at every level can take action to improve lives in our own community.
