Midlands Community Foundation’s Matching Charitable Program Raises Over $2M
Midlands Community Foundation (midlandscommunity.org) is pleased to announce that its 5th MCF Matching Charitable Program that ran from December 1, 2017, through January 5, 2018, raised more than $2 million, with $386,452 qualifying for matching funds.
Under the Matching Charitable Program, MCF provided matching funds for new contributions made to existing and newly created Affiliated General, Designated, Donor Advised, Field of Interest and Scholarship Funds. Matching donations were made on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to a limit of $5,000 per individual donor, and subject to a maximum of $100,000 of matching dollars being available in the aggregate for all Funds. If more than $100,000 was contributed on an aggregate basis to all Funds, the matching dollars for that entity was prorated among such donors based on the total contributions made.
“We are pleased to offer our more than 115 funds a simple, powerful and highly personal approach to giving. The Match Program stretches our donors’ charitable dollars, allowing them to support the causes most important to them. This year’s Match Program again exceeded our expectations and we are thrilled to Invest in the Power of Community,” said Executive Director Tonee Gay.
The mission of Midlands Community Foundation is to benefit the diverse needs of the Sarpy and Cass county communities by providing financial support, involvement and service. Since its inception, the Foundation has donated more than $8 million dollars to many worthy organizations through its grants program, discretionary giving and special events.
