Become a Ruthmere Forever Challenge Match Contributor!

Are you a leader who likes to help organizations that demonstrate support from their community?

You can be confident that you are backing a winner!

  • vRUTHMERE FOREVER CHALLENGE MATCH IS A GAME CHANGER
  • 1.     By committing to a Ruthmere Forever Challenge Match, your philanthropy will motivate the community to meet your generosity through their own giving.  Example: A $6,000 Ruthmere Forever Challenge Match contribution, plus the CFEC match of $2,000, inspires Ruthmere Forever Donors in the community to donate $8,000 toward long-term sustainability.  YOUR $6,000 makes a $16,000 IMPACT and your generosity is fully leveraged.
  • 2.     Challenge Match contributions will FIRST go toward current program support so that Ruthmere Campus can continue to thrive in the present while THE COMMUNITY builds the Ruthmere Campus endowed funds at the CFEC for Ruthmere's future.   
  • 3.     Once annual program needs are met through Challenge Match contributions, Ruthmere staff will direct Challenge Match Contributors to fulfill the remainder of their match contributions into the Ruthmere Campus endowed funds at the CFEC, thus earning an ADDITIONAL 25% match from the CFEC!  


See the pie chart below to see how your generosity is more than DOUBLED and at the same time inspires generosity from others in the community.
