GoodGiving Guide Challenge raises money for local charities

The GoodGiving Guide Challenge, an online giving campaign designed to engage the community and raise funds for more than 100 Central and Eastern Kentucky charities, is underway.

Donors can visit BGgives.org and participate in the challenge, which is now in its fifth year, through 11:59 p.m. Dec. 31.

Nonprofits will also compete for thousands of dollars of endowment prizes and match dollars made possible by the Community Foundation and dozens of public and private partners.

The challenge also promotes the importance of giving locally. “We’re all aware of the importance of buying locally,” said Lisa Adkins, president and CEO of Blue Grass Community Foundation. “But it’s just as important to give locally.”
