Midway Village announced recently it successfully completed the Carroll Starr Endowment Challenge.
Carroll H. Starr was the founder of the Rockford Community Trust, known today as the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. The endowment is designed to help nonprofits grow endowments that will provide financial resources to support their operations into perpetuity. Upon successful completion of the Challenge, CFNIL matches $1 for every $3 raised by an organization, up to $50,000. Midway Village successfully raised $150,000 during their Challenge, earning them the full CFNIL match.
The finale celebration on Feb. 17 included a check presentation from Midland States Bank, which donated $15,000 to Midway's Challenge to help bring them to a successful completion.
