Okoboji Foundation nonprofit challenge underway

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

The Okoboji Foundation invites the public to join the $5,000 July Nonprofit Challenge at GiveOkoboji.com

It’s 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. For larger gifts or those who do not want to donate online, the Okoboji Foundation is happy to assist with your donation details.
