This fundraising program offers proportionally awarded grant prizes to participants who receive at least 10 donations of $25 or more between May 1 and August 31. Additionally, the endowment that receives the most donations from different households will earn a $1000 grant bonus. All grant prizes will be awarded directly to the endowment fund to continue to grow and do good, forever.

“These endowments make a difference in Putnam County, both today and in the future,” said Elaine Peck, Executive Director of the Community Foundation. “As they grow, their impact grows. In 20 years an endowment administered by the Putnam County Community Foundation will have nearly doubled in size and distributed more than was originally contributed.”

Share the Dream ends August 31, so give early and spread the word to support your favorite cause!

There are many ways to give. Contributions may be made by cash, check, online, stock, IRA distributions, and more.
