The Seeley Lake Community Foundation’s Change Your Pace Challenge is a campaign for community-wide giving, celebrating the people and organizations that make our community great. During this six-week fundraising period, the Change Your Pace Challenge motivates community members to give to their favorite participating local nonprofits, knowing the impact of their gift will grow thanks to the generous businesses and individuals that give to the CYP Match Fund. All donations go through SLCF, allowing donors to support as many organizations as they wish, using one donation form.

2019 will be the 4th annual Change Your Pace Challenge. Each year, about 15-20 local organizations have raised money for important projects through CYP. Since 2016, over $258,000 in support for Seeley Lake area organizations have come in through our annual Change Your Pace Challenge!

The Match Fund

The Seeley Lake Community Foundation solicits contributions to our CYP Match Fund from generous businesses and organizations who inspire us all to give. These match funds increase the size of your gift to your favorite organizations! You can also join these extraordinary Challengers by giving to the Match Fund, and your gift will help all participating organizations.

After the donation period closes, we'll tally up each organization's totals, and calculate the match percentage based on how big our Match Fund grows.

Together let’s support these hard-working organizations that in turn support our community!
