31 Oct 2016 Match Day
The third annual Moundridge Community Foundation Match Day will be held November 3 from 12noon until 6pm at Quincy’s. Moundridge Community Foundation is an affiliate of the McPherson County Community Foundation.
All donations will be placed in the organizations endowment fund administered by the Foundation. An endowment is invested for the purpose of producing present and future income for distribution to a named organization or donor designated annually. An organizational endowment, such as for the Match Day participants, provides a permanent income source to be used for operating, programming or special projects as determined by the organization’s board.
The match will be granted to qualified organizations based on the proportional amount raised for each fund throughout the day. For example, if one organization raises 10% of the overall pool, it will receive 10% of the available match. Funds are made possible by a grant from the Moundridge Community Foundation.
Each organization was given marketing material including posters, insert cards, donor letters and flyers to promote the day. Participating organizations are:
Cradle to Crayons Child Care and Preschool
Moundridge Food Pantry
Moundridge Historical Association
Moundridge Public Library
Moundridge Senior Center
Swiss Mennonite & Cultural Historical Society
Moundridge Education Fund
Moundridge Arts Council
