Kabara Challenge Update

When a major change occurred to the Midwest District’s fundraising efforts, which resulted in losing $50,000 in funding, Betty saw an opportunity for more transformative philanthropy through a matching gift of $25,000. If a donor offered to match gifts directed to the Senior Brothers, could the $50,000 be raised in a new way? As a result, in 2015, the KabarA Challenge was born as a way to provide for Senior Brothers continued “Golden Year” needs.

The 2024 Kabara Challenge has a goal of raising $500,000 for the care of our senior Brothers. This includes a match of $250,000 on gifts up to $5,000.
