A Message from Jeff and Marty Fetters

Year after year, this one-of-a-kind event raises millions in support of children facing adversity. That means many kids from our communities are now on the right path. Instead of skipping school, they’re making post-secondary plans. Instead of engaging in risky behaviors, they’re playing basketball or hanging out at the library with their Bigs. Instead of feeling like “I can’t,” they have a Big Brother or Big Sister who says “Yes, you can, and I’m here to help.”

Thank you!

The Federated Challenge® helps support life-changing friendships that make a lifelong difference. The Federated Challenge was established in 2004 and has raised over $30 million to support the youth mentoring and educational programs of the Big Brothers Big Sisters® agencies domiciled in Minnesota and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Part of the proceeds are allocated to the Federated Challenge Scholarship Program, which provides financial support to “Littles” pursuing degrees at two-year trade and technical colleges. Fifty-five corporate sponsors have embraced our mission of making a positive impact in the lives of children through their continued support of the Federated Challenge.

Please join us for a heartwarming gala dinner at the St. Paul RiverCentre and a spirited round of golf at Interlachen Country Club. Never before could your generosity have such a lasting, positive impact on the next generation of children.
