COMMUNITY FOUNDATION RUN


When: APRIL 8, 2017
Where: Rotary Pavilion, downtown Gastonia
Why: To support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Gaston and other local nonprofits
 

 

 
This annual event hosted by the Community Foundation of Gaston County supports all eligible nonprofit organizations in Gaston County.  All donations are received, tallied, processed and held by the Foundation, who then acknowledges donors with a tax receipt and records the gifts in funds named for the beneficial organization.
 
The Foundation has set aside a portion of its unrestricted funds for this special event. This seed money will help (1) fund the event, (2) provide the base funds for the match, and (3) provide prize money.  The Community Foundation Board of Directors has committed funds to the Match Fund, sponsor donations will benefit the Match Fund and individual donors like you can contribute.
 
You can help grow the Match Fund by notating your contribution on the Donor Form & including in your total contributions. Organizations invite their donors to give to the Community Foundation through RUN. Gifts will be accepted beginning in February 2017. Checks must be made payable to the Community Foundation, and all donations must be accompanied by a Donor Form.  Don't forget to designate your donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Gaston!
