RUN FOR IT 2020
During these challenging times, the Tucker Community Foundation is changing up the rules on Run For It. At a team's request, we will pay out the team sponsorship monies monthly for the event. We encourage nonprofit organizations to set up their fundraising page and share it with potential donors. You can add information about your organization's programs and needs during this crisis and beyond.
The Tucker Community Foundation will share each fundraising page monthly via a newsletter and on social media. We also encourage each organization to use their page for their own fundraising efforts during COVID-19. If your organization needs help setting up your fundraising page, we are happy to assist in setting it up. Please call, 304-478-2930, or send us an email, email@example.com.
