With a shared vision that “change is almost impossible without industry-wide collaboration, cooperation and consensus,” (Simon Mainwaring) the Great Charity Challenge presented by Fidelity Investments® (GCC) is honored to be joining forces with a champion in the community: United Way of Palm Beach County.

Scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 6, 2021 at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC), the GCC will distribute an additional $1 million to local non-profit organizations. To date, the exciting show jumping competition that blends equestrian sport and philanthropy has raised and distributed $14.8 million to 256 charities. While the GCC has been extremely blessed by the generous support of the equestrian community to date, the current settings surrounding COVID-19 warrants for the event to extendits reach and partner with local change agents in the hopes of creating a broader impact during these challenging times.

This year, the GCC has joined forces with United Way of Palm Beach County to enable the event to accept online donations for the first time, in the hopes of raising additional funds to support local charities. Both organizations acknowledge that non-profit organizations have stepped up to be the backbone of our local communities, providing basic needs since the onset of the pandemic.
