Over the Edge

Sometimes giving back requires a leap of faith.

In the summer of 2017, CHARISM started Over the Edge with two goals. Raise money to assist at-risk youth in their education through enriching and empowering programs. Have a little fun while we’re at it.


On event day, with the help of trained and certified rappelling experts from OVER THE EDGE USA, participants spend an adrenaline packed afternoon rappelling down Fargo’s Black Building. 

To go “Over the Edge” with CHARISM, participants pledge a fundraising goal in order to secure their own rope during the event.  Each participant receives an online fundraising page to customize and share their giving goal. Participants encourage friends and family to support your efforts and the children CHARISM serves. 

100% of the funds raised at CHARISM Over the Edge benefits CHARISM's out-of-school-time programming. ​We’ve all experienced individual difficulties in our lives, but with togetherness comes the strength to conquer challenges. CHARISM’s goal is to make sure no child is ever forgotten, given up on, or left behind. Join us each summer as we leap "Over the Edge" to go above and beyond for the children in

our community.

Light the Way

On a sometimes darkened path forward, it’s hope that lights the way.

Light the Way Gala is an annual fundraising CHARISM event. Help us Light the Way for those that need it most and know that you did what you could to spark the flame of a brighter path forward for a child who truly deserves it. 

All proceeds from Light the Way support the CHARISM Cares program which assists our city's most at-risk families and their access to meaningful, enriching out-of-school programs. The CHARISM Cares program works toward reducing barriers for youth to make sure poverty isn’t the sole determinate of their life’s potential. It provides access for our city’s most in-need and at-risk children to meaningful out-of-school educational, skill building, and life-enriching programs. 

Each November, join us as we work toward a better tomorrow for Fargo and its families. Join us and help light the way. Friend us on Facebook for annual event information.
