A Community Thrives, part of the USA TODAY NETWORK, is off to an incredible start. Now that we’ve reached the second week, we want to remind you about bonus challenge #2.

The top 5 organizations in tier 1 and tier 2 that receive the greatest number of individual online donations between Monday, March 25th at 12pm ET and Monday, April 1st at 11:59:59am ET will each be awarded a $3,000 grant.

We recommend that you message your supporters about each weekly bonus challenge. They’re amazing opportunities to raise even more funds for your cause and they give you a fresh messaging point when reaching out to your network.

To help you get the word out, we’ve provided a custom email draft in the link below that you can customize for your network.




Keep the momentum going strong and if you have any questions at all, please Email Us and we’ll get back to you shortly.

Thanks so much.
