In May, the Kosciusko County Community Foundation announced that, in celebration of its 50th anniversary, 10 youth serving nonprofit organizations were selected to participate in “Endowment Challenge 50”.
The Wagon Wheel Theater is the first organization to have successfully completed the fundraising portion of the challenge.
Participating organizations committed to raising $10,000 for their endowment and to participate in multiple trainings focused on sustainability and donor development. In return, the youth serving organizations would receive $40,000 in matching funds for a total of $50,000 for their endowment funds.
Community Foundation CEO Suzie Light says they are proud of the Wagon Wheel for reaching the goal.
“The work Wagon Wheel is doing with youth means that children of all backgrounds have access through school trips to the performing arts and have the opportunity to participate in workshops and camps,” she explains.
