Florence Nightingale Challenge

Florence Nightingale

The Florence Nightingale Challenge is a friendly competition among area businesses to raise financial support for Manna through company fundraisers. In the spirit of Florence Nightingale, a celebrated social reformer, we encourage local companies to host fun, creative fundraisers to help neighbors in need. Whether you raise $10 or $10,000, your service makes a difference in our community. Join the Challenge today!

  • Ask colleagues, employees or customers for fundraiser ideas. Have fun brainstorming!
  • Plan your fundraiser details and mail this completed form to Manna.
  • Our Media Sponsor, The Reporter, will highlight this Challenge with a feature May ad and story. Individual fundraisers will be spotlighted through print and/or online promotion.
  • This Challenge is year-round, from May 1, 2016 – April 30, 2017. Hold your fundraiser anytime during the year!
  • Please let Manna know if you would like a representative to attend your fundraiser. We would welcome the opportunity to lend our support and share our mission with participants.
  • Manna will announce Challenge winners at the closing awards ceremony.
