FOHC – Let’s Prouty!
Saturday, July 8, 2017
There is no better time than right now to register for the FoHC 2017 Prouty team.
The Prouty is approaching! We are thrilled to announce the details of an increased team match and extra incentives for 2017. We have an additional early match opportunity that will maximize your fundraising efforts.
Our Friends of Hanover Crew Prouty team has quite a history, raising over $1.1 million dollars for Norris Cotton Cancer Center over a 10-year period of participation from 2007-2016, not to mention several hundred thousand dollars raised for the crew program in that same timeframe, making it possible for us to secure a permanent home and sustain our large program. These funds represent a significant source of support for both organizations and a unique opportunity for our Prouty team members to leverage their contributions to TWO worthy causes.
In our 11th year, our donor has increased our team matches and offered some extra incentives, all detailed at the end of this message.
In addition to these generous team matches to NCCC and FoHC (McLaughlin match), there is an additional Byrne Foundation match offered by the Prouty for funds raised above and beyond individual/family minimums on May 15. The first McLaughlin match will be made on or around May 12. Therefore, anyone with at least their minimum funded will be eligible for a compound match opportunity. Here is a simple example to demonstrate how that would work:
Prouty family minimum funded before 5/12 = $300
McLaughlin match on 5/12 +$300 = $600
Byrne match on 5/15 +$300 (total amount in your headquarters minus the Prouty minimum) = $900
Additional matching gift to FoHC = $250
Total funds raised on $300 minimum family registration ($900 to Prouty + $250 to FoHC) = $1,150
In order to earn our full potential FoHC Prouty team matches, we hope you will register as soon as possible and take advantage of the early compounding opportunity!
