More than 30 non-profits to participate in CCCIF Match Day this Thursday
By Joshua Smith
For the last four years, the Clay Center Community Improvement Foundation’s annual Gather For Good Match Day has been a fantastic way for charitable donors to see their gifts stretch just a bit further in making big, positive changes to their local community. This year’s event, with more than 30 participating local non-profits, hopes to be the biggest yet.
On Match Day, all donations between $25 and $1,000 gifted to any of the local nonprofits will be eligible for a prorated match from the $30,000 in available match money. With each organization available to receive a maximum of up to $1,000, your donations could make a real difference.
This year’s event will take place on Thursday, September 16, with options to participate in-person, online, or via mail-in. The in-person event will be held at the Clay County Museum, 518 Lincoln Avenue from noon until 8:00 p.m. As a special benefit, every hour of the in-person event an individual donor from the previous hour’s donations will be chosen to receive a $50 donation to a charity of their choice.
Anyone who can’t make it to the in-person event can utilize the Gather for Good donor portal when it goes live at 12:01 a.m. September 16. The portal will remain open for 24 hours, closing for donations at 11:59 p.m.
Donors who prefer to make their donation by check can mail their gift along with a completed donation form, found at gatherforgoodcc.com, to the Clay Center Community Improvement Foundation at 432 Court Street, Clay Center, KS 67432. The donation must be postmarked on or before September 16, 2021.
