$45,000 Challenge Grant

Matching donations needed by 31 January

One of our Senior Associates has stepped up to the plate again this year with a two-for-one $45,000 challenge grant to Foresight. This offer was originally set to expire on December 31, but because members will be hearing about it quite late, we have been able to negotiate an extension to the end of January.

This means that for every new dollar pledged by January 31, Foresight will receive two more, thereby tripling your donation.

Qualifying as matching funds are:

In the U.S. donors can achieve maximum tax benefits by making their donations before Dec. 31, 1997, since they will be able to take the deduction against 1997 income taxes instead of waiting a year.

If you have questions about the challenge grant, or about becoming a Senior Associate, contact us at the office.
