$50,000 Challenge Grant

Matching donations needed by January 31, 2000

A group of Senior Associates has stepped up to the plate again this year with a dollar-for-dollar $50,000 challenge grant to Foresight. This offer is good until the end of January.

This means that for every new dollar pledged by January 31, 2000, Foresight will receive one dollar more, thereby doubling your donation.

Qualifying as matching funds are:

In the U.S. donors can achieve maximum tax benefits by making their donations before Dec. 31, 1999, since they will be able to take the deduction against 1999 income taxes instead of waiting a year.

If you have questions about the challenge grant, or about becoming a Senior Associate, contact us at the office.
