One22 has secured $750,000 of funding for the next three years, stemming from a Nunn and Friends Challenge that asked the nonprofit to raise $125,000 in three annual pledges for three $125,000 matches.

“Meeting this challenge goal provides long-term sustainability for One22 Resource Center,” Executive Director Sharel Lund said in a statement.

The challenge started with a core group of 10 — Carole and Jack Nunn, Jan and Bob Hartman, Margot Snowdon and Yves Desgouttes, Patty and Dick Jaquith and Gloria and Bill Newton — who together offered to pay $125,000 a year for three years should a $125,000 annual gift be secured for three years.

Eighteen donors agreed to the pledge, helping the nonprofit — which is now going by One22 Resource Center — secure the sizable matches.

“For many of our neighbors, need knows no season," Board Co-chair Snowdon said in a statement, "and this challenge grant will allow us to continue providing critical resources to those in times of need.”
