Community Foundation Run 2020 Fundraiser

What is so special about the Community Foundation Run?

The Community Foundation Run is a fundraiser through the Community Foundation of Gaston County that matches donations made by donors during the fundraising period! Last year’s match was 37%.

This is the best way to donate all year!

What is it?

All donations lead up to a 5K run / 2K walk on April 4 through the town of Gastonia. Runners and walkers are invited to participate. Donors give to the nonprofit they wish to support through the Community Foundation allotted for Community Foundation Run 2020. Gifts are accepted now through April 13, 2020. Checks must be made payable to the Community Foundation, and all donations must be accompanied by a donor form, which can be downloaded on this page.
