Please mark October 16th on your calendars... and on your computers! From 8am on October 16th until 8pm on October 17th, The Community Foundation of Greater New Haven is staging its online fundraising competition, the Give Greater Challenge. This year there is $160,000 in grant awards on the line, including several $20,000 grand prizes in the categories of overall money raised, the greatest number of donors, and the greatest number of new donors. The more support we receive during this 36-hour competition, the greater our chances of being awarded one of these grants.
In Give Greater 2010 we received an unprecedented outpouring of support from 410 donors in 47 states and were awarded the grand prize, a grant award of $20,000.  We have put that money to great use in direct support of the deserving New Haven students we serve.
Here we are again. We hope you will choose to show your support during this crucial 36-hour fundraising initiative and that you will share news of the contest with others who might believe in our mission. This year's minimum donation is $25.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.  We will be in touch again as the contest begins and to update you on our progress; for more information please visit  Thank you in advance for your support and for your confidence in our program and our kids!
