Each were tasked with raising at least $10,000 for permanent endowment funds during the month of February, to be matched by a $5,000 grant from the CFO. With matches included, the organizations raised more than $180,000 in permanent funds that will support their missions in perpetuity.

“We’re so happy to congratulate these organizations for successfully meeting this challenge,” CFO president Brian Fogle said. “Investing in these endowments is a testament to the value these organizations provide to our communities not just now, but for years to come.”
