2016 marks the 9th year for the annual Tin Cup Challenge and beginning at 8 AM on Friday, March 20 through Friday, July 22, 2016 at 5 PM, 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 $8 million in just 8 years for Teton Valley nonprofits and over $1 million each year for the last 5 years. Donors interested in supporting their favorite nonprofits during the 9th Annual Tin Cup Challenge can do so with one transaction, either online or by check using the donor form included in the 9th 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 “Accept the Challenge” and support the important work of local nonprofits with a donation of any size. Together, we can improve lives through the power of generosity.
