Multiply your impact on Match Day, Nov. 30, 2021
MatchDay is moving online!
Match Day is an opportunity to help nonprofit organizations grow their funds exponentially--so they can fulfill promises to our local communities for years to come. Between November 15th and November 30th, known globally as Giving Tuesday and locally as MatchDay, make a gift to your favorite local nonprofits. The more you give, the more your favorite charities get from the $100,000 match pool. Celebrate with us throughout the day and donate online.
How It Works
- Donation Period: November 15 - November 30, 2021
How: Make your donations online at matchday.wkcf.org!
- The $100,000 match pool will be divided among the participating organizations in proportion to the total amount raised. Agencies can earn up to 50 percent of the pool if contributions to their organization that day equal 50 percent or more of the total amount raised.
- As extra incentive, prize grants will be given throughout the day based on various criteria. Organizations can also earn prize grants if they raise the most money.
