Double Your Impact With a 1:1 Match

Posted by on September 6th, 2017

Two major donors have stepped forward to provide $750,000 in funding for EWB – a $500,000 challenge grant from the Houston-based Montana Cahill Foundation and a $250,000 gift from Missouri S&T graduate David Heikkinen and his wife, Ann. The Montana Cahill Foundation challenge grant is the largest gift in the history of S&T’s EWB Chapter. It will match every dollar contributed to the chapter up to $500,000 to create a $1 million fund in support of EWB. The Heikkinens’ gift is the second-largest in chapter history and brings the challenge halfway to its goal of raising $500,000.

With $250,000 in challenge funds remaining, contributions are still needed. To take part in this limited matching opportunity, indicate on your check’s memo line, “EWB- Montana Cahill Foundation Challenge.”  For credit card donations, see our Donate page for a link to give online.

Gifts designated directly to EWB will be used for much needed annual support until our $1 million match is fulfilled.
