The United States Tennis Association (USTA) rallied for a second year with the Matching Campaign challenge, and NIRSA Members once again stepped up to meet it.

Member contributions to the NIRSA Foundation at the 2007 Annual Conference in Minneapolis totaled $20,237, a record amount that more than earned a $15,000 matching gift from USTA.

This outstanding show of support comes during the second year of the $1 Million Milestone campaign, which aims to bring the total amount of money raised by the NIRSA Foundation since its inception in 1992 beyond $1 million by December 2010.

Thank you, Members and USTA!
