Community foundation announces Match Madness on May 7

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

The Washington County Community Foundation will host Match Madness, a county-wide giving day, on Tuesday, May 7, 2019.

On this day, donations to any fund at the community foundation will be matched proportionally up to 50% from a match pool of $2,500.

Donations can be made in one of three ways:

  1. Give online at anytime between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. CST on May 7, 2019.
  2. Mail gifts to the foundation at PO Box 24, Washington, KS 66968, postmarked May 7.
  3. Deliver cash or check donations to a community foundation board member May 7: Donna Frye, Stephen Hendrickson, Chad Hiltgen, Steve Joonas, Doris Nanninga, Clarice Ohlde, Mary Spence or Steve Wieters.

This event is designed to generate new gifts to the endowed funds of local nonprofit organizations. Endowed funds are permanently invested to produce a steady stream of income. This provides ongoing support for charitable needs throughout the county. All Match Madness gifts are tax-deductible.
