The Community Foundation of Gaston County will hold the 6th Annual Run for the Money on Saturday, April 19, 2008.

More than 105 non-profit community groups will benefit from the contributions to the Community Foundation which has distributed $5.1 million to organizations since it begin in 2003.

Organizations must be certified charitable organizations, school-based programs, or faith-based groups, to be able to participate in the events. 

In February 2008, donation forms will be available from the Community Foundation. People wishing to donate funds for specific groups need only to designate which organization they wish their funds to support. The Community Foundation provides a formula match up to $10,000. In May, the organizations receive matching funds from the foundation.
