Designed to provide critical investment to nonprofit organizations that support and impact everyday community members and Pontiac residents, the Pontiac Impact Challenge provides financial awards to nonprofit organizations as a result of dollars raised through crowdfunding.
In partnership with Thrivent, from November 29 through December 4, 2022, participating nonprofits will be given the tools and resources necessary to engage community members in crowdfunding. At the end of the challenge, Pontiac nonprofits will have a new base of supporters and a new tactic that they can use for further fundraising. In addition, financial awards of $10,000, $5,000 and $2,500 will be awarded to three participating nonprofits that raise the most funds from their supporters. Additionally, participating organizations can receive $1 for each comment or photo added to their crowdfunding page during the length of the campaign, up to $250.
