Emporia Area Match Day

Here's How It Works


Emporia Area Match Day on Monday, November 12, 2018 holds incredible opportunity for nonprofit organizations within the greater Emporia area. On that day, your contributions will be matched on a prorated basis. Matching funds of $50,000 thanks to the generosity of Clint Bowyer 79 Fund; E.L. & Irene Hopkins Foundation; Jane & Bernard Reeble Foundation; Trusler Foundation; and the WS & EC Jones Testamentary Trust Bank of America, N.A. Trustee.

Here’s how it works:

  • Donors are encouraged to come to the event and make a donation, or make an online (website will be made available}, to one or more of the participating organizations.

        Date:    Monday, November 12, 2018

        Time:    9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.  

        (Online gifts can be made between 12:00 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. on November 12th)

        Place: Flinthills Mall, 1632 Industrial Rd, Emporia, KS 66801

  • The money earned by each non-profit group is an outright donation and may be used as they wish. Some may choose to put it in their fund with the Emporia Community Foundation for future use or they may choose to use it for day-to-day operating expenses.
  • Gifts can be made by cash, check, or credit cards in person at the event. In fact, individuals are encouraged to come to the event to meet representatives of the participating nonprofit organizations and learn about their activities. When donating by check, please make one check payable to Emporia Community Foundation on one form and indicate which nonprofit(s) will benefit.
  • Credit card gifts can be made online if donors are unable to attend the Emporia Area Match Day. Simply sign in on this site and complete the form.
  • Throughout the event, individual donors who make gifts in person at the Emporia Match Day will be randomly chosen every hour to win grants for the charity of their choice.

The majority of the participating Match Day nonprofit organizations have a fund with the Emporia Community Foundation. These funds are very beneficial for the future of non-profit organizations, but each one still faces monthly expenses. They still need contributions to their annual campaigns. Emporia Match Day is an opportunity to support their activities and enrich their programs for even greater impact for years to come.
