Help Pioneer Center win $150,000 by donating to its CrowdRise campaign
Pioneer Center for Human Services has joined the Newman’s Own Foundation $500k Holiday Challenge, a fundraising competition on CrowdRise, the largest crowdfunding platform for good. Newman’s Own Foundation $500k Holiday Challenge is a friendly fundraising campaign for eligible US-based 501(c)3 charities. Participating organizations will compete for half of one million dollars in prize money. Pioneer Center has joined the challenge on CrowdRise in hopes of raising money to support its developmental disability, behavioral health and homeless service programs.
Pioneer Center serves over 4,500 in McHenry County annually and relies on private contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations to support our three service areas. Challenge funds will be used to support the organization’s 15 group homes for individuals with developmental disabilities, mental illnesses, and autism, as well as the organization’s two PADS shelters for the homeless.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness of the important work Pioneer Center does within McHenry County,” said Amy Hernon, Director of Development for Pioneer Center. “As a non-profit organization, annual contributions are vital to our stability. This challenge has the potential to double those contributions—doubling the impact!”
The Newman’s Own Foundation $500k Holiday Challenge launched on CrowdRise on November 21, 2017 at 12pm ET and runs through January 3, 2018 at 1:59:59pm ET. There are 10 grand prizes up for grabs with the team that raises the most online winning $150,000 and 10th place winning $2,500. On #GivingTuesday an additional $85,000 will be awarded to the top 3 charities. Plus, weekly Bonus Challenges enable charities to win up to another $115,000.
CrowdRise Challenges are innovative fundraising competitions for charitable organizations designed to build capacity, create massive engagement and leverage, and use the power of the crowd to provide new meaningful funding streams for organizations in every sector.
