What is the GoodGiving Challenge?
The GoodGiving Guide Challenge - a partnership of Blue Grass Community Foundation and Smiley Pete Publishing - is an online charitable giving campaign celebrating the diversity of nonprofits in the region and allowing people to learn and contribute to their work. Donors can select their favorite organization and make a donation using a credit card, a Blue Grass Community Foundation Giving Card, a Blue Grass Community Foundation Donor Advised Giving Fund, or ACH Checking at the secure website www.BGgives.org.  Donations to nonprofits will have an even greater impact during the Challenge, thanks to hundreds of thousands of dollars in challenges, match pools and grant money provided by sponsors
