2017 Angels Among Us Challenge Pledge of $200,000

Angels Among Us Challenge Flyer PDF

An anonymous donor – and very special angel – has pledged $200,000, and issued an “Angel Challenge” to every team who participated in 2016, to raise even more for brain tumor research in 2017!

Teams that participated in the 2016 Angels Among Us will be awarded $1 for every $1 of increased giving by their team in 2017, up to a maximum of $200,000! For example, if Team A raised $1,000 in 2016, and raises $1,500 in 2017, the $500 increase will be matched dollar for dollar. So, Team A will receive an extra $500 for their team total, making their 2017 donation $2,000. Only the funds you raise above and beyond your 2016 total are eligible to be matched.

“Angel Challenge” funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis prior to April 29th, until the $200,000 donation is depleted. To qualify to have matching funds added to your team total, all donations must be mailed by April 19th. All web gifts must be made on April 27th or before. After that date, please bring gifts with you to the event. At the event, if there are still challenge funds available, the teams with the largest increase from 2016, will be awarded first until all the funds are depleted. 

We want to make sure every dime of this challenge grant is used by our Angel teams. Please let your team members know about this very generous challenge grant and get started now! 

Gift-in-kind donations or fees for services do not qualify for the challenge. Donations pledged but not yet paid do not qualify.

For questions, contact the Angels office at angelsamongus@dm.duke.edu

This challenge grant is valid until July 31, 2017
