Frequently Asked Questions
Over the past 26 years, Old Bill’s Fun Run has raised more than $228 million for local nonprofits. Each year, funds raised through Old Bill’s touch the lives of everyone in Teton County. Please see below for eligibility requirements and how to participate in Old Bill’s.
Old Bill is the spirit of generosity in our community. All participants in this extraordinary event are Old Bill!
Qualifying nonprofit organizations in Teton County, Wyoming are invited to participate in Old Bill’s Fun Run. See Eligibility details above. Teton County, Idaho organizations that participate in the Tin Cup Challenge are not eligible.
The percentage varies annually and is based on the total amount of match money raised and the total amount of designated contributions. The first $30,000 of each nonprofit’s designated gifts are eligible for matching, and in recent years, the matching grant on these gifts has been approximately 50%. This means the maximum additional funding available for each nonprofit is about $15,000, depending on any given year’s match percentage. All eligible participating organizations receive the same percent of matching dollars on the first $30,000 in designated contributions they raise.
100% of the designated, community-raised contributions are distributed to nonprofits chosen by donors (subject to the Community Foundation’s variance power) along with the supplemental matching grant on the first $30,000 raised on their behalf.
20% of the match funds raised are allocated to the Foundation’s discretionary granting programs, including Competitive Grants, nonprofits working in Teton County can apply annually for additional funding through these programs. To successfully produce Old Bill’s each year, the Foundation assesses a 5.5% administrative fee that is funded entirely from the matching funds to ensure that nonprofits can participate for free and receive 100% of their designated contributions.
Participating organizations are encouraged to use the Old Bill’s logo leading up to and throughout the Giving Season. In 2022, we redesigned the Old Bill’s logo.
