Match Day - Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2019

Multiply your impact on Match Day, Dec. 3, 2019

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. On Giving Tuesday, make a gift to your favorite local nonprofits. The more you give, the more your favorite charities get from the $75,000 match pool. Celebrate with us in person, or donate online.

How It Works

  • Come to the event and make a donation.
    Date:   Tuesday, December 3, 2019
    Time:   7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
    Place:   Western Kansas Community Foundation, 402 N. Main St., Garden City 
    or donate online anytime from midnight to midnight
  • The $75,000 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 to donate in person, 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 money or have the most individual donors.
  • Donations of $20-$2,000 per person per organization are eligible for a match. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted. Donations are tax-deductible and can be divided among multiple organizations. Checks must be made payable to Western Kansas Community Foundation.
