Matching Grant Challenge for Bringing Nature to Life Campaign

On Sept. 10, The Ridges Sanctuary received a generous matching challenge gift to help complete their capital campaign, Bringing Nature to Life. Anonymous donors will match dollar-for-dollar all donations and pledges up to $350,000 received between now and the end of the year.

To date, $92,000 has nearly been made. With the match, the campaign total is $2,831,200.

By making a gift during this special challenge match, a tax-deductible donation of $50 can become $100, or a gift of $100 can become $200. Any amount you give can have twice the impact.

All gifts and pledges must be made by Dec. 31 and will be matched on a first-come, first-served basis until the $350,000 level is reached. Multi-year pledges of up to three years are welcome. There is no upper limit on the size of a single gift. For more information, call 920.839.2802 or visit
