2017 Trustees’ Matching Challenge
Tuesday, June 20, 2017
The Boston By Foot Board of Trustees' Matching Challenge has been a big part of the organization's annual fundraising efforts since it began in 2012. Thanks to the generosity of our Board members and volunteer community, the Matching Challenge has been a great success for the past five years, and allows Boston By Foot to continue our mission of promoting Boston's history and architecture.
The 2017 Matching Challenge set a goal of $4000 to be raised by the volunteers, with the Trustees matching every dollar. Our volunteers certainly rose to the occasion and not only met the $4000 goal, but exceeded it. As a small educational nonprofit, these funds are both meaningful and necessary. They enable us to continue our educational mission and ensure we have the resources to support ongoing guide training, tour programming and operational needs. Boston By Foot extends its sincerest gratitude to the volunteers who participated in the Matching Challenge, and to our entire volunteer community for giving their time every day and making Boston By Foot what it is.
