What is a CoChallenger?

CoChallengers are a special group of individuals and businesses who donate matching funds to Old Bill’s. CoChallengers do not designate their gifts for specific nonprofits, and instead support the matching grants that all participating nonprofits receive. Led by Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill, who donate $500,000 annually, CoChallengers give at levels of $25,000, $35,000, $50,000, $75,000, $100,000, $150,000 and $250,000. These donations form the match pool, which is divided up to supplement funds participating nonprofits raise. 

In 2022, nonprofits were provided with a 61% matching grant on designated funds raised up to $30,000; organizations that raised $30,000 or more in designated gifts received the maximum matching grant of $18,240 from the Community Foundation.

CoChallengers are Community Leaders

The generosity of CoChallengers inspires increased giving from the community and is key to Old Bill’s success. CoChallengers are community leaders who intrinsically value philanthropy, and help highlight the tremendous work of local nonprofits. In total, 85 CoChallengers partnered with Mrs. and Mrs. Old Bill in our most recent Giving Season, with 11 either increasing their gift or donating to the match fund for the first time.


Thanks to CoChallengers...

  • Nonprofits receive 100% of designated contributions and pay no administrative fee to participate
  • Over 200 organizations enthusiastically cooperate in a unified fundraiser
  • A portion of the match pool provides additional grant funding for nonprofits throughout the year via the Community Foundation’s Competitive Grants, Youth Philanthropy, and Micro Grant programs
  • Old Bill’s continues to grow, with one in three households in Jackson participating!
