Bremer Give-to-the-Kids Challenge Kicks-Off

The first-ever ‘Bremer Give-to-the-Kids Challenge’ in Greater Minnesota launches today, Sept. 28, and runs through Oct. 5. Earlier this fall, the Otto Bremer Foundation announced it was providing a $300,000 matching grant, which will be used in a one-to-one match for nonprofits that serve youth in Greater MN. Participating nonprofits can earn up to $6,000 in matching dollars through online donations made Sept. 28-Oct 5 at GiveMN.org.

The Foundation decided to focus the Give-to-the-Kids Challenge to help youth-serving nonprofits in Greater Minnesota increase their fundraising capacities and efficiencies. This is especially critical for nonprofits in communities challenged by limited bandwidth or staffing that restrict their fundraising abilities.
