About the Wamego Community Foundation Match Day

The inaugural “Wamego Community Foundation Match Day—A Day of Community Pride and Inspiration in Giving” is scheduled to be held on Friday, the 7th day of June, 2019, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. 

 

This event will be held annually by the Wamego Community Foundation on the first Friday in June of each year at Iron Clad Coworking, 427 Lincoln Avenue in downtown Wamego, Kansas.The Wamego Match Day will provide a unique opportunity for the entire Wamego community to participate and support local nonprofit organizations and various charitable funds and causes. 

 

Individuals and various entities that make gifts on this day to participating nonprofit and other charitable organizations will be provided the opportunity to make a bigger and more significant impact through their giving.  Donations made on Match Day to various organizations by members of the community at large will go directly into the funds these organizations have with the Wamego Foundation. 

 

Through generous gifts of monies made to the Foundation by Benefactors with established, long-term ties to the Wamego community, each organization receiving Match Day donations will then receive an additional 50% matching amount on their donor gifts from matching monies made available to the Wamego Foundation by the Benefactors.  Each organization receiving gifts on Match Day shall be entitled to use these combined gifts where and in a manner deemed by the organization to be most needed and most appropriate.  Some organizations may use these monies to increase their endowment while others may use all or a portion to fund immediate operating requirements. 

 

The availability of these matching funds enables individual and organizational donors throughout the Wamego Community to cause a bigger impact with each of their gifts on Match Day through the generosity of these matching funds contributed by these Benefactors.  This generosity will go far in effectively making this “Day of Community Pride and Inspiration in Giving” a realty, and will mark a significant beginning for an event which is intended to become an annual Wamego community tradition to be held in the spring of each year.
