The Results are In: Challenge for Charities Raises Half-Tuition Scholarship for Local Student

Lander Community Foundation’s Challenge for Charities was a huge success this year. NOLS was one of 24 local non-profits to participate, raising nearly $2,400 towards a local scholarship. Funds came from individual donors, runners of the Lander Half Marathon and 5K who contributed their “Charity Bucks” winnings, and a 54 percent match through the foundation. Forty Community Challengers contributed $65,400 to the matching fund.

NOLS would like to thank our donors, runners, the Lander Community Foundation and Community Challengers for supporting this important community initiative.
