8th Annual Grow Green Match Day 

Wednesday, April 22, 2020
NO LIVE EVENT - Due to COVID-19 Online Gifts only or Mailed Checks


Wednesday, April 22, 2020 will be a great day for the Manhattan, Kansas community when the 8th Annual GROW Green Match Day will take place!  On that day, donations made through the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation to 65 participating nonprofit endowed funds will receive a 50% match.



COVID-19 has turned our world upside down.  So in response, GMCF is turning things upside down too. 

  • In past years, your donations to participating non-profits have gone directly into their endowed fund (long-term savings) at GMCF.  The 50% match could be used for immediate operating costs. 
  • In 2020, your donations will made available to each organization for their immediate needs.*  The 50% match will go into their endowed fund at GMCF.
  • Combined donations up to a total of $20,000 will be matched at 50%, giving a maximum of $10,000 in matching funds to any one organization.   

The 2020 COVID-19 Recovery Fund will be included in the list of giving choices.  

  • Funding will be directed for relief and recovery efforts for Riley County residents who are in greatest need due to the current pandemic situation.

So please, mark your calendars and plan to be a part of this wonderful day of giving
to benefit friends and neighbors in the place we all call home.
