100 Families Challenge 2024

Double Your Gift in June!

SOWMA’S 100 Families Challenge is a matching campaign made possible by Jay & Claudia Weed. 

Each June the Weeds match every gift received, up to $10,000 for students in need.

100 Families x $100 = $10,000 

Great way to honor a teacher, coach or graduate.  

$20,000 for Kids in 2024!

More than $10,000 was donated during June 2023, and then generously matched by longtime supporters Jay & Claudia Weed.

That’s $20,000 for educational support for students impacted by homelessness and poverty – thanks to you and the Weed family!

Every dollar raised during the month of June – up to $10,000 – is generously matched by the Weed Family. The goal is for 100 families, individuals, or groups to donate $100 each to help us reach our goal.

$10,000 becomes $20,000, bringing the ultimate gift of educational opportunity to students. 

Your gift supports…

  • Tutoring at family shelters and community learning centers
  • Mentoring for high school, vocational and college students 
  • Customized backpacks and “Tools for School” for more than 10,000 children and youth. 

We are thrilled to be supporting the 100 Families Challenge once again. School on Wheels continues to amaze us year after year. This organization is unique in its mission and breathtaking in its triumphs. SOWMA not only addresses the immediate needs of children facing homelessness, it alters their trajectory toward stability and success.
