Endowment Challenge

Join us in making sure that charitable dollars will remain in Mississippi and help her citizens forever. As part of our 25th Anniversary year, CFM is focusing on building endowments — a core tenet of our mission — and have chosen five nonprofits for an endowment challenge. We want to work with some of our best grantee partners — those with strong organizations, excellent programs and great outcomes — whom we feel are ready to create or continue an endowment campaign.

Gifts made to one of these endowment funds are magnified by the matching grants CFM makes to those funds. The Foundation will make available an “up to” amount, to establish or add to an endowment fund for each of the selected nonprofits. The nonprofits have 12 months to match these dollars, and each organization has a unique dollar amount to raise to meet the challenge.
