Event Details

Match Day is from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm on Monday, November 12, 2018, in the Flinthills Mall, 1632 Industrial Rd, Emporia, KS 66801. (Online gifts will be accepted between 12:00 am - 11:59 pm on November 12th)

Donation Information

 

Matching funds of $50,000 are available to participating organizations. The match will be pro-rated on a percentage basis. The percentage is figured by taking the amount an organization receives divided by the total amount raised that day. That percentage then determines how much of the match money an organization receives. 100% of your gift plus the match amount will be passed on to the organizations listed on the contribution form.

For example: If an organization has $4,000 in donations and the total donated to all organizations for the day is $40,000, the percentage they raised is 10%. The organization will then also receive 10% of the matching funds.

There isn't a minimum donation amount. While there is no maximum gift amount, matching funds will only be awarded to the first $1,000 of each donor's contribution.

For example: If a donor chooses to give $1,500 to a single organization, the entire amount will be awarded to the group. However, only $1,000 will be counted toward the total used to figure the match percentage.

THE EMPORIA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION IS A SECTION 501(c)3 NONPROFIT AND DONATIONS MAY QUALIFY AS A CHARITABLE DEDUCTION FOR FEDERAL INCOME TAX PURPOSES. CONSULT WITH YOUR TAX ADVISERS OR THE IRS TO DETERMINE WHETHER A CONTRIBUTION IS DEDUCTIBLE.

If donors provide an email address, all gifts (cash, check and online) of $30 or higher will receive a receipt via email. If no email address is provided, donors will receive a receipt letter after the event.

Each individual donor writes one check made payable to the Emporia Community Foundation for the total of all gifts to various participating nonprofits. Donations by participating organizations to themselves will not qualify for the match or incentive prizes.

Donors are encouraged to make gifts in person at the event. If a donor is not able to attend the event and does not want to make an online gift, other individuals may bring a gift in for them. Checks must be dated 11/12/2018 and payable to the Emporia Community Foundation.

Volunteers will be available at the event to accept check & cash gifts as well as assist with online donations.

Donations are irrevocable and must be made on Emporia Match Day - November 12, 2018.
