The Great Charity Challenge presented by Fidelity Investments® has given $14.8 million to 256 Palm Beach County Charities

Founded by father and daughter duo, Mark and Paige Bellissimo in 2009, the Great Charity Challenge presented by Fidelity Investments® (GCC) came forward as a way to increase funding to local non-profits, following the 2008 economic crisis, at a time when donations were scarce.

In its first year, the event generated over $400,000, benefiting 24 local charities. Today, the event has grown to benefit over 30 local charities competing for over $1+ million each year.
