BAPA has received a challenge grant from the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust that will match your donations dollar for dollar, doubling the value of contributions received by #Giving Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018.
What is Giving Tuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, kicking off the charitable season. BAPA humbly asks you to get involved in your own back yard by giving as generously as you can to us on #GivingTuesday, November 27.
Now through #Giving Tuesday, your gift to BAPA will be doubled, thanks to a matching grant from the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Trust. Whether you’re a current BAPA member, planning to renew your annual membership or a first-time member, we hope you can find a little extra in your budget now that your monetary contribution will go twice as far!
Why support BAPA with the Driehaus Challenge Grant?
This generous matching grant from the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust will enable BAPA to expand its grassroots work in the community that targets beautification, programs that support neighborhood schools, strengthening services to local businesses, reactivating community partnerships and more.
BAPA relies on financial support from neighbors who understand our mission to keep Beverly/Morgan Park strong and beautiful. But an important aspect of this grant opportunity is the positive reflection of BAPA’s leadership and work and an affirmation of BAPA’s vital role in the Beverly/Morgan Park.
The residents and businesses in Beverly/Morgan Park have a long history of supporting BAPA’s work, and we are hoping that neighbors who have not yet become members will view this grant as an opportunity to show their confidence in BAPA work and double the impact of their dollars.
