Held through the MightyCause platform, the Art Van Charity Challenge is awarding the top 10 non-profits, who raise the most in online gifts now through September 27, with prizes ranging from $100,000 to $5,000., whose missions focus on women, children and human services, who raise the most money by September 27.
“Last year, our Clubs really felt how much our community supports kids. In three short weeks, we were able to raise $386,000 for Club programs and services – earning the top Art Van prize of $100,000. The Challenge truly was a community effort, and we are hoping people are willing to open their hearts again this year to help our Clubs rise to the challenge,” states Ryan Smiley, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Indiana.
The community can join together to help rise to the challenge and bring the grand prize home to Northwest Indiana for a second year.

Gifts can be made to help reach the goal now through September 27 at 10:59 a.m. Gifts made during this time will help support programming focusing on good character and leadership, like the premier Youth of the Year program. lifestyles. Along with the grand prize, there will be weekly challenges awarded to the non-profit who wins that particular weekly challenge.
