Rutter’s Children’s Charities decided to kick off this holiday season by donating $100,000 for the Holidays Donation Giveaway, where four local charities will receive $25,000 each.
“Through our $100,000 for the Holidays donations, we hope to make this season a little brighter for those in need,” said Chris Hartman, president of Rutter’s Children’s Charities. “We look forward to choosing four worthy charities and spreading the holiday cheer.”
The donation applications will be open from Nov. 1, 2022, through Nov. 21, 2022. Qualifying organizations can visit Rutter’s website to complete the entry form. To qualify, the charity must have a focus on benefitting children and be a 501c3 organization. At the conclusion of the submission period, Rutter’s Children’s Charities will review the applications, selecting a total of four winners. Each selected recipient will be presented with a $25,000 donation, totaling $100,000 this holiday season. Winners will be contacted in December.
