We were so happy to celebrate the success of our 2018 Endowment Match Challenge yesterday evening! Ten nonprofits, from Joplin to Cape Girardeau, raised a total of $174,388.14. With the CFO’s match of $5,000 each, that makes a total of $224,388.14 for endowed funds that will help these nonprofits in perpetuity. As our President Brian Fogle said at our party last night: “That’s a better return than Bitcoin.”
