26 Jan Inman Community Foundation to host 2nd Annual Match Day
The Inman Community Foundation will be hosting its second annual Match Day event Wednesday, Feb. 17.
Match Day provides a unique opportunity for community members to support local organizations through matching donations by the Inman Community Foundation. This year’s event will allow individuals to make donations both in person and online.
“Match Day is a fantastic opportunity to double your dollars and double your impact for your favorite Inman organization,” said Terri Borhnholdt, Inman Community Foundation President. “The event allows you to put your money where your passion is. Each of these organizations makes a huge contribution to our lives in Inman in their own way. Supporting one or all on Match Day makes their work go further.”
