Great Fish Community Challenge

How does it work and why does it work?

  • Daria Perez, VP Finance and Operations
  • Presented by Lynnette Donaldson
    8:30 A.M. Grouse Mountain Lodge
    Breakfast at 8:00 A.M.
    Cost – Free

Are you thinking about applying to participate in the Great Fish Community Challenge for the first time? Or have you participated before but not in 2019? If so, this meeting is mandatory for your organization. The campaign turns 6 this year, and while it continues to evolve, one thing we have learned is that it works! Every year since inception, more donors have learned about local nonprofits, they are giving to multiple nonprofits at a time, and they are giving more dollars than the previous year. We will cover how the Great Fish Community Challenge works, what we are looking for on the application, and changes in store for 2020. The application is available to preview on our website so take a look and come with your questions ready!
