Match Day Set to Return Thursday

On Thursday, March 19, community members will have the opportunity to work together as a team and make a difference in the Greater Milwaukee area by participating in Match Day.  This 24-hour online giving event, coordinated by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, in partnership with Brewers Community Foundation (BCF) and other local funders, will support 20 different basic needs organizations that serve as a lifeline to thousands of individuals and families in need.

Match Day offers individuals, businesses and others a chance to support the organizations in our community that are helping meet individuals’ basic needs. Individuals can donate to one or more of the 20 participating agencies.  Thanks to more than $830,000 in matching funds contributed by a pool of funders including Brewers Community Foundation, The Ceres Foundation and Meijer, each donation made online on Thursday will be proportionately matched.  Over the past three years, more than $7.6 million was raised overall through the event.

 

“We are thrilled to once again be a part of this event,” said Brewers Community Fund Executive Director Cecelia Gore. “Through the support of Mark and Debbie Attanasio and BCF, members in our community will have the opportunity to see their contribution multiplied to make an even greater impact.”

 

Donations could feed a family that may otherwise go without food this week, aid a veteran who is struggling from post-traumatic stress disorder or provide shelter to someone who has just lost their home.

 

To make a donation, please visit MatchDayMKE.org on Thursday.  Simply search through the 20 participating agencies you wish to support and make a debit or credit card gift of $10 or more.  The gifts will be matched proportionately, based on the total amount raised by each organization that day.  All donations are tax deductible and nonrefundable. As part of the Brewers Community Foundation’s financial contribution to Match Day, eight nonprofits will be chosen throughout the day to receive an extra $1,000.

 

Mark and Debbie Attanasio and Brewers Community Foundation are co-sponsors for Match Day, along with The Ceres Foundation and Meijer. Other supporters include The Faye McBeath Foundation and United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County, along with several other contributors.
