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 will make an online donation at a remote location, to one or several of the participating organizations.  Or mail a check dated 4/22/20 to GMCF postmarked on or before April 22, 2020.
 
Date: Wednesday, April 22, 2020
(Online gifts can be made between 12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m. on April 22)
Place: Due to COVID-19 all gifts will be made either by mail or online.  There will be NO LIVE EVENT
 
Checks should be mailed to:
GMCF
P.O. Box 1127
Manhattan, KS  66505-1127
(Please submit one check for the entire donation amount and date it 4/22/20.  Mailing should be postmarked on or before 4/22/20.  A donation form will be available to download from this website.  Please print and include the completed form with your mailed check donation.) 
 
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 directly to each organization for their immediate needs.  The match money earned by each non-profit group will be deposited into their GMCF endowed fund.  Some may choose to add all gifts to their endowment.
 
Gifts can be made by mailing a check, or online using a credit card.  Credit card gifts can be made online at a remote location.  When donating by check, one check must be made payable to GMCF.  A separate GROW Green Match Day donation form is available for download on this website and should be printed and returned with mailed checks (only page 2 needs to be printed and returned with your check donation).  This will be used to indicate which fund(s) will benefit from your donation.
 
COVID-19 has caused many of these organizations to cancel or postpone their annual fund raising events.  Donations on GROW Green Match Day will help them more than ever this year!
