Challenge Grant!

A group of special friends of the Mather Homestead have created a "challenge grant" in celebration of our fifth year.  All incremental funds raised this year (new gifts or increased gifts) will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000, giving us an opportunity to "double our impact!"

Thank you to our group of special friends:  Maureen & Richard Chilton, Jennifer and Graham Foster, Carol and Ward Glassmeyer, Penny and Edward Glassmeyer, Sally and Pat Houlihan, Ania and Michael Janis, Betsy & Bill Jones, Ginger and Howard Morgan, Tammy and Michael Sload.
