Hillsboro-based MB Foundation has announced three new winners in its Giving Challenge.
The randomly selected winners are Michelle Hamilton of Cimarron, Garry Kargel of Eugene, Ore., and Glenn Ratzlaff of Hillsboro.
Each winner will receive $5,000 to give away to the ministry, or ministries, of their choosing.
The purpose of the Giving Challenge was to gather brief stories that encourage generosity, then release resources for further ministry impact.
The winning stories range from paying someone’s utilities, making mortgage payments, to giving a car to a family in need.
The Giving Challenge, which concluded at the end of April, documented more than $1.1 million in gifts of generosity in 14 different states.
“I enjoyed reading all of the stories and was very encouraged by the level of participation in the Giving Challenge,” said Jon C. Wiebe, MBF president and CEO.
“We are excited to be able to come alongside these individuals and provide them with the resources to bless others and to encourage a spirit of generosity.”
With a total of four winners, an additional $20,000 will be made available from MB Foundation for further ministry through these four individuals.
