2018 Stronger Together Campaign
The Stronger Together campaign’s goal was to grow the DCNP Endowment Fund, started in early 2018, to a total of $2 million. The Community Foundation committed $1 million as a sign of its dedication, along with additional contributions from donors excited to provide core support to DCNP. At the start of the campaign, the DCNP Endowment Fund was valued at approximately $1.4 million, leaving $600,000 left to go. The Douglas C. and Lynn M. Roberts Family Foundation generously offered a dollar for dollar match up to $300,000 for donations and pledges made through December 31, 2018. Thanks to this generosity, the Community Foundation embarked on a time-sensitive campaign in September 2018 with a goal of $300,000.
Thank you to the 131 donors who contributed to the Stronger Together campaign! Through your generosity, we successfully raised $286,267 toward the goal. Including the generous dollar for dollar match provided by the Douglas C. and Lynn M. Roberts Family Foundation and other contributions received, a total of $647,534 in support came through for the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP).
