Help Your Favorite Non-Profit and Make Your Donations Go Farther on
MatchDay, December 3
MatchDay on Tuesday, December 3 holds incredible opportunity for 34 local non-profits. On that day, Western Kansas Community Foundation will proportionally match donations made to those organizations.
Here’s how Match Day works:
Come to the event and make a donation.
Date: Tuesday, December 3
Time: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. on-site
Place: Western Kansas Community Foundation, 402 N. Main, or donate online at www.wkcf.org anytime from 12 a.m.-11:59 p.m.
The 2019 match pool is $75,000, and it will be divided among participating organizations in proportion to the total amount raised. Organizations can earn up to 50 percent of the pool if contributions to their agency that day equal 50 percent or more of the total amount raised.
Hourly prize grants will be given throughout the day, drawn from the previous hour’s donors contributing in person. Organizations can also earn prize grants if they raise the most donations during the event.
Donations of $20-$2000* per person, per organization are eligible for a match. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted.
*Only donations between $20 and $2000 will be matched, however all donations will be accepted.
Donations are tax deductible and can be divided among multiple organizations. Checks must be made payable to Western Kansas Community Foundation and dated December 3rd. Receipt letters will be issued to each person making a donation.
Building an endowment is critical to each organization’s future, but they still face monthly expenses. MatchDay is a unique opportunity to benefit both of those needs so that we can enrich our people and programs for even greater impact, for years to come. Contributions to participating organizations during MatchDay 2018 helped us raise over $411,000 for area non-profits.Your gift is vital for maximizing the match and to help continue providing the programs that are valuable to our corner of the state.
