The Tin Cup Challenge is both a campaign for giving and a one-day event celebrating our community’s spirit of generosity.  In six years, the Tin Cup Challenge has raised nearly $6 million, allowing our local nonprofits to focus their efforts on their mission rather than multiple fundraising events.

Join more than 1,000 of your friends and neighbors on July 19, 2014 when the Community Foundation of Teton Valley will host the 7th Annual Tin Cup Challenge in Driggs City Park! The day will include family fun for all ages brought to you by the many participating nonprofits, a free breakfast courtesy of McDonald’s of Jackson Hole, a 5K Fun Run/Walk and competitive 10K and 5K races.


Supporting your favorite nonprofits through the Tin Cup Challenge is easy. Plus, the Challenger Fund increases the impact of every dollar that you give. The Giving Period for the 7th Annual Tin Cup Challenge officially opens on May 23, 2014 and gifts will be accepted until 5pm on July 28, 2014.  Donations can be made during the giving period using the donor form available in the 2014 Tin Cup Brochure or by using the button below.


Giving Period will not open until May, 23, 2014

The success of the Tin Cup Challenge depends on the tireless efforts of hundreds of volunteers to coordinate safe and successful races and a full morning of celebration in the park.  Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks from assisting with office administration to helping with promotion to showing up on the big day to help in hosting another great Tin Cup Challenge.

All participating nonprofits are required to commit a minimum of 18 volunteer hours to the Tin Cup Challenge in order to participate in the fundraising campaign.
