Our Fund, an LGBT community foundation, announced at their recent anniversary celebration, that local philanthropist, Mona Pittenger is offering to establish the “Mona Pittenger Giving Fund,” with a gift of $500,000 if Our Fund can raise the same amount for new or increased donor advised Funds from the community.
“This is a terrific opportunity for donors to have their contribution matched and potentially raise a million dollars – how often does that happen?” said Pittenger. “LGBT non-profit organizations are besieged with requests for critical services and many are under-funded.”
“This gift can have a transformative impact on our community,” commented Anthony Timiraos, Our Fund CEO/President. “Mona’s challenge is both generous and visionary – the type of leadership that ensures the success of our community foundation.”
