Join us during the Challenge for Charities season in Lander, Wyoming!

Support Community Entry Services today during the Challenge for Charities season!

Lander, Wyoming, a community renowned for its natural beauty and vibrant spirit, is currently abuzz with a remarkable event that combines philanthropy and adventure. The Challenge for Charities, hosted by the Lander Community Foundation, is in full swing, offering a unique opportunity for individuals and businesses alike to make a positive impact on our community. This event has gained tremendous momentum over the years, transforming the act of giving into an interactive experience. From now through July 10th, any donation you make to CES through this link will be matched up to a certain amount by the Lander Community Foundation. For another way to get involved, join in on the racing fun on July 4th!

How does it work?

During the designated giving period (May 1st to July 10th), both individuals and businesses have the opportunity to donate to their preferred charitable organizations through LCF. This approach provides a simplified method for nonprofits to generate funds while remaining mission-focused. Those who contribute to a Matching Fund are referred to as challengers. The Matching Fund supplements the funds collected by the nonprofits, potentially up to 60% of the total amount. To illustrate, if a nonprofit manages to raise $10,000 or more from donors, they would be eligible to receive an additional $6,000 through matching funds.

Why donate to Community Entry Services?
