Future growth

The Shriver Challenge recognizes the critical role the Shriver Center plays through its expertise in the law, deep local and national knowledge, and commitment to building coalitions. With a lead gift of $1 million, Sargent and Eunice Shriver's five children have challenged the Shriver Center to raise a total of $3 million by December 31, 2017. Funds raised through the Shriver Challenge will position the Shriver Center for long-term growth and stability.

A gift to the Shriver Challenge is an investment in preserving and building quality of life for millions of people living in poverty. Gifts may be made one time, monthly, annually, or through a five-year pledge, starting at a $5,000 level.
