While fundraising is not required to participate in DONNA events, it is encouraged. All funds support the critical programs of The DONNA Foundation to provide financial assistance and support to families living with breast cancer and fund ground breaking breast cancer research.

Jacksonville philanthropists Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver CHALLENGE you!

You raise $300,000 for a $50,000 match.

Anyone can fundraise. Here’s how it works »

The Weaver Challenge is back! The continuation of the Weaver Challenge marks the 11th year of this unique gift. Since its inception, the Weaver Challenge has encouraged DONNA fundraisers nationwide by matching funds raised. To date, the Weavers have donated $1 Million to The DONNA Foundation, which in turn has generated nearly $3 million to finish breast cancer.

“Finishing breast cancer will take the effort of all of us, and Wayne and I hope that this challenge will motivate even more support for this critical work. We want to encourage everyone to contribute to The DONNA Foundation so that we can support those living with this terrible disease and accelerate the research that will eradicate it.” – Delores Barr Weaver


“There are no hearts bigger in this community that those of Wayne and Delores Weaver. I’m so incredibly grateful for their continued support. They challenge all of us to dig deeper, to give more of ourselves, and in doing so to make the lives of our neighbors better. They also take the time to be on the race course every year cheering on our runners. It’s become a highlight of the day for me. True treasures.” – Donna Deegan
