Co-Challengers are a special group of individuals and businesses who donate matching funds to Old Bill’s. Co-Challenger gifts are not designated for specific nonprofits, but are used to match the community’s donations. Led by Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill, who donate $500,000 annually, Co-Challengers 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 amounts that participating nonprofits raise.

Co-Challengers are Community Leaders

The generosity of Co-Challengers inspires increased giving from the community and is key to Old Bill’s success. Co-Challengers are community leaders who intrinsically value philanthropy, and help highlight the tremendous work of local nonprofits.

Thanks to Co-Challengers
  • Nonprofits receive 100% of designated contributions and pay no administrative fee to participate;
  • Competing organizations willingly cooperate in a unified fundraiser;
  • A portion of the match pool provides grant funding for nonprofits twice annually;
  • Old Bill’s continues to grow with one in three households in Jackson participating!
