Last year local Indy group Companies With A Mission gave away $100k to Indiana charities for the best service projects that companies, groups, and non-profits submitted. In this year’s contest they are giving away $200k!
The Indiana Service Challenge is as simple as this — “Grab some coworkers, form a team and plan a service project.”
One of Companies With A Mission’s huge desires is to help further proliferate the popularization of service projects within organizations nearby and everywhere. CWAM has a separate panel of judges who vote for the winners and then the produce those gi-normous checks that will be handed to the lucky recipients. Awards are between $2000 and $15,000. So your odds of winning should be amazingly good. Last year 1 in 4 submissions won.
CWAM is a new client of MissionKonnect and does some really cool stuff. Alongside Athletes in Action, CWAM hosted the last two Superbowl Prayer Breakfasts. When the Super Bowl was here in Indy and this past year in New Orleans. CWAM created a New Orleans version of this “Indiana Service Challenge” with the Drew Brees’ Brees Dream Foundation and gave away $1 million! CWAM was proud to share that 100% of the entrants in the New Orleans contest won money.
CWAM also has a standing offer to pay for anyone who wants to go on a mission trip (minus airfare). CWAM regularly sends groups on mission trips to Homes of Hope (MissionKonnect original client).
