Midwest Nonprofits Compete in Art Van Charity Challenge

Art Van Furniture’s 10th annual Art Van Charity Challenge began on May 1, with nearly 100 Midwest 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations vying for $305,000 in grants.

Nonprofits in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri focusing on women, children, and human services will engage supporters and community members to raise the most money for their favorite causes.

“Everyone can participate in the Art Van Charity Challenge by making donations, spreading the word, and gathering support to benefit causes closest to their hearts,” said Diane Charles, vice president of corporate communications. “Raising awareness as well as funds makes every organization a winner.”

For the first time, charities with operating budgets of more than $500,000 will compete for five grants, including a $100,000 grand prize, and those with operating budgets of less than $500,000 will compete for five awards, including a $50,000 grand prize. Art Van Furniture will also provide bonus grants throughout the three-week competition, which concludes at 2 p.m. on May 22.

For the fourth consecutive year, international supermodel, businesswoman, and philanthropist Cindy Crawford is serving as the campaign’s official ambassador.

Powered by CrowdRise, the Art Van Charity Challenge raised $1.4 million in 2017 and granted $180,000 to winning charities. Since the competition began in 2009, more than $10 million has been donated and over $25 million has been raised for 400 charities.
