2016 marks the 9th year for the Community Foundation of Teton Valley’s annual Tin Cup Challenge and on Wednesday, March 9th the meeting that signifies the kick-off will be held from 8:30 – 10 AM at the Seniors West of the Tetons Community Center in Driggs. Nonprofits interested in participating in the 9th Annual Tin Cup Challenge are required to send one representative to this informational meeting where application processes, guidelines and important dates will be reviewed. According to Dawn Banks, Community Foundation Marketing & Programs Director, “This is a great opportunity to gather all the information necessary for participating nonprofits and have their questions answered. Attending this meeting in March gives every organization the opportunity to plan ahead and organize their strategy before we head into the busy summer months.”
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 $8 million in just 8 years for Teton Valley nonprofits. “The Tin Cup Challenge provides the inspiration for those who care about Teton Valley to take action on behalf of their community. Whether they give of their time or their money, it all adds up to creating a significant impact, particularly for the nonprofits that serve our community,” said Carrie Mowrey, Foundation Executive Director.
