It took 2 days less than the full challenge time for Thresholds to reach $10,000 and complete the Help Holly Help Grant Challenge!  The Thresholds grant challenge is the third consecutive nonprofit organization to reach the grant challenge maximum.  In total, thresholds will receive more than $20,000 from the matching grant challenge.

Similar to past challenges, donations came in varying amounts.  Donations were thousands of dollars and tens of dollars.  Regardless of the amount, Holly Geraci and Peter Francis Geraci will match each donation.

The Thresholds challenge started slow, but heated up, with donations coming in spurts. By the middle of March, Thresholds was about halfway to $10,000.  However, it was not until March 29, 2017, that the final donation took Thresholds to the grant challenge threshold of $10,000.

Since starting the Grant challenge in October of 2016, Holly Geraci and Peter Francis Geraci have issued four grant challenges.  In total, the Help Holly Help Grant challenges have raised more than $124,000 due to increased donor support and creativity by the nonprofit organizations.

Holly Geraci and Peter Francis Geraci have already selected the next Help Holly Help Grant Challengee.  The challengee will be posted on Mrs. Geraci’s Facebook page and on Help Holly on April 7, 2017.  The next challenge will run from May 17, 2017, through May 15, 2017.
