This year marks the 25th anniversary of Old Bill’s Fun Run, and unfortunately it will have to be run virtually for the second year. Still, the Community Foundation has announced that already, more than $5-million dollars has been raised for this year’s match fund which is more than a $1½-million increase over last year.
In celebration of Old Bill’s 25th anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill generously provided the first $1,000,000 in matching funds, doubling their existing challenge. To date, 31 co-challengers have either increased their gifts or donated to the Old Bill’s Match Fund for the first time. In total, eighty-two Co-Challengers are partnering with Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill this year.
Co-Challengers and Friends of the Match do not designate their gifts for specific nonprofits, and instead provide the matching grants that all participating nonprofits receive, fostering philanthropy as a community value. The deadline for this year’s pledging is Friday at 5:00 pm.
