Okoboji Foundation nonprofit challenge underway
The Okoboji Foundation invites the public to join the $5,000 July Nonprofit Challenge at GiveOkoboji.com
Its the "Center Point of Giving" for several Lakes Area nonprofit funds in the foundation's family of funds.
Look for blue flags flying as a reminder to join the fun and help your favorite nonprofit fund win $5,000.
The challenge is very simple. Encourage others to join you with a gift of any size to help your favorite nonprofit fund. The nonprofit fund with the highest amount received totaling more than $5,000 in July, wins an additional $5,000 in their fund from the Okoboji Foundation. Start by going to GiveOkoboji.com and selecting your favorite charity or charities to donate.
