We’re Half Way to $80K with Generous Matching Grant

Matching Grants DOUBLE Year-end Gifts

Thanks to a generous group of donors, including $25,000 from Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf, year-end gifts are matched up to $80,000 through December 31st! That’s right…your gift has 2X the impact when matched dollar-for-dollar up to $80,000!

“Through the generosity of so many, we are over HALF WAY TO REACHING OUR YEAR-END GIVING GOAL,” shares Executive Director Elizabeth Gertz. “We want others to know that their gifts will be matched, and that 100% of donations are used directly for adaptive programming!”

“For many of us, the activities we enjoy are easily accessible,” Gertz explains. “This is not the case for children and adults living with disabilities. In rural northern Michigan, these opportunities are even more limited.”

Challenge Mountain adaptive recreational programs are year-round — from adaptive skiing to kayaking. And, all are provided FREE of charge.You can help to create an inclusive environment, remove financial barriers and provide the opportunity for youth and adults with disabilities to live full and active lives.

Support adaptive recreational programs with an ONLINE DONATION before December 31st, and bring magical memories, joy and connection this holiday season!
