How It Works


GROW GREEN Match Day on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 holds incredible opportunity for nonprofit agencies with endowed funds at the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation.  On that day, GMCF will provide a 50% match on donations made to participating endowment funds.
Here’s how it works:
Donors come to the event and make a donation, or make an online donation at a remote location, to one or several of the participating organizations.
Date: Wednesday, April 22, 2020
Time: 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.  
(Online gifts can be made between 12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m. on April 22)
Place: Harris Activity Center, 530 Poyntz Avenue, Manhattan, KS
Individual contributions ranging from $25 to $1,000 per organization will receive a local match at $.50 per $1, so a $1,000 gift can receive a $500 local match.  If a donor gives a $5,000 gift split evenly between five organizations, each group is eligible to receive a $500 match.  
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.
Gifts made by community donors will go into the organization’s endowed fund.  The match money earned by each non-profit group is an outright grant and may be used as they wish.  Some may choose to add it to the endowment or they may choose to use it for day-to-day operating expenses.
Gifts can be made by cash, check, or online using a credit card.  Cash & check gifts should be made in person at the event.  Credit card gifts can be made online at a remote location or at the event.  When donating by check, one check must be made payable to Greater Manhattan 
Community Foundation.  A separate form will be used to indicate which endowment(s) will benefit.
Throughout the event, one individual donor who has made a gift in person at the GROW Green event will be randomly chosen every hour (out of that hour’s donations) to win extra green ($100) for the charity of their choice.
Building endowments is critical for the future of non-profit organizations, but each one still faces monthly expenses.  They still need contributions to their annual campaigns.  GROW GREEN Match Day is an opportunity to grow their endowments, to enrich their programs for even greater impact, for years to come.
