The sixth annual McPherson County Community Foundation Match Day will be held from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.  March 6. The Foundation is offering up to $60,000 in matching funds for the contributions given to one of 32 participating organizations. 

Here’s how Match Day works:

The match pool is divided proportionally to the total amount raised on March 6. For example, if a total of $100,000 is raised and an organization receives 10 percent of the total donations, they will receive $6,000 to use for immediate needs or add to the endowment fund. ($12,000 max per organization).

Minimum donation amount to be matched is $25. There is no limit on the amount of funding donors may contribute to an organization’s endowed fund.

Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted. Only gifts made on March 6 will count toward match day totals.

Although it is preferred for donors to give in person, donations may be made online from 7 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Visit www.mcphersonfoundation.org and follow the Match Day link on March 6 to give.
