The EmbraceCLE Community Challenge

Total Raised in 2020: $203,459

In September 2020, Embrace launched the inaugural EmbraceCLE Community Challenge, a month-long community fundraising competition in which 14 Cleveland-area charities competed to raise the most money for their non-profit mission. In addition to keeping the money they raised, the top organizations walked away with cash prizes from Embrace totaling $50,000.

Our company felt compelled to help these nonprofits, whose fundraising efforts had taken a hit this year due to COVID-19. This is proof that people have an innate need and capacity to come together. I’m extremely proud of the innovators and leaders who pour themselves into these causes and the people who donate both their time and treasure to support them.
