IFHOF CHALLENGE MATCH A SUCCESS!

Earlier this year, the Indiana Football Hall of Fame received a wonderful monetary gift from our good neighbor, First Bank Richmond, to begin the process of technology improvements within the IFHOF.  Unfortunately, we soon realized that one thing was going to lead to another to complete this goal.  A grant was written and the IFHOF was among several non-profit organizations selected to receive matching grant dollars from the Wayne County, Indiana, Foundation.  Contributions to support the Challenge Match Grant effort were received over a 14-day window between November 12th and November 25th from our many friends of IFHOF from across the country.  It was a very successful campaign!  Click on the Wayne County Foundation icon on our home page to visit their website and learn more about the results of this grant opportunity.  A huge "THANK YOU" is extended by the IHFOF Board of Directors and museum staff to our many contributors, the Wayne County Foundation, and First Bank Richmond for the opportunity to move forward with our technology goals.
