Shumla Match Challenge FAQ
1) Who made the challenge?
Two individuals and one foundation are partnering to lay down the $100,000 matching challenge. They are all so generous and have asked to remain anonymous.
2) How does it work?
We must raise $100,000 from our friends and supporters to match the challenge gift by December 31, 2019.
3) Can I send a check instead of give online?
Of course! You can send a check to 5706 E. Mockingbird Ln., #115-363, Dallas, TX 75206.
4) How can I keep up with Shumla's progress toward making the match?
5) I'm an Alexandria Project Pledge Donor, does my pledge gift count toward the match?
YES! Alexandria Project Pledge Donors, who pledged in 2017 to give each year for the four years of our flagship archaeological project, are a very important part of our effort to make the match.
6) What about North Texas Giving Day?
North Texas Giving Day is an 18-hour online giving event on September 19th hosted by Communities Foundation of Texas. Any gift given through this campaign will go toward Shumla's Match as well!
7) Why should I contribute?
Shumla's mission can only be achieved through the generosity of our friends and supporters. Through the Annual Match Challenge, your gift is doubled. That means each gift goes twice as far toward supporting our incredible team as we work to preserve the ancient murals of the Lower Pecos Canyonlands.
