FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne is kicking off its 2023 #GivingTuesdayFW challenge to raise money for Fort Wayne non-profit endowments.

Starting Wednesday, the community foundation will match contributions to select local non-profit endowments up to 20%. You have until Nov. 20 at 11:59 p.m. to make donations.

The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne has also listed many area non-profits that are part of the group’s Giving Tuesday Challenge. The foundation says it will surprise the top-raising 5 groups with a gift on Giving Tuesday. This year, Giving Tuesday is on Nov. 28.

The local organizations are spread across five categories: Connected Community, Inspiring Places, Everyone’s Economy, Lifelong Learning, and Healthy Mind & Body. Many familiar names are on the list. You can find a full list of non-profit endowments to support at the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne’s website.
