Tin Cup Challenge Grant Program
The Community Foundation of Teton Valley hosts the Tin Cup Challenge Grant Program annually. This program encompasses an 8-week, streamlined giving period for all participating nonprofits. The Foundation solicits gifts for all participating organizations with a box mailer to all Teton County, ID residents and markets the campaign thoroughly over the 8-week giving period. The 3rd Saturday in July marks the culmination of everyone’s efforts on Event Day. This celebration includes a community race and family-friendly, nonprofit booths at the Driggs City Park.
During the giving period, the Foundation and its Board work double-time to solicit donations for the Challenger Fund. The Challenger fund covers the cost of Event Day, gift processing, and provides a matching grant (of variable percentage) to participating nonprofits for the first $25K they bring in during the giving period.
All eligible nonprofits receive access to Donor View where they can track gifts made on behalf of their organizations. A username and password to access the site are included in acceptance letters. Visit Nonprofit View >
