Match Day 2017 was a Success!

Dec 4, 2017

Coffeyville Area Community Foundation hosted Match Day on Wednesday, November 15th, at the Perkins Building, Downtown Coffeyville Plaza, to benefit 20 local nonprofit organizations and charitable funds.   Over $94,637 was contributed on Match Day for local Nonprofit Organizations.  A steady stream of donors came throughout the day to support local causes.  From 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM & 24 hours online, Match Day brought donors and representatives from the nonprofit organizations together on a single day to raise significant funds for local needs.


Local Nonprofit Organizations participating in Match Day received contributions from over 99 donors making 244 gifts with a total impact of $94,637 including contributions, the match, and prize dollars. KGGF Radio hosted a live-remote and provided an opportunity for nonprofit organizations to speak on the air about the mission of their organization and current goals and activities.


“It was a great atmosphere and wonderful opportunity for donors to connect with the local nonprofit representatives.  Donors were able to visit in person with representatives to learn about current projects and immediate needs the nonprofit organizations might have.” says Ann Marie Vannoster, Coffeyville Area Community Foundation Board Chairman.  


This year Coffeyville Area Community Foundation, The Bernard and Effie Jo Wade Family Foundation, and the Pratt Family Charitable Fund partnered to provide $40,000 matching money to donations given to 20 local nonprofit organizations and charitable endowed funds.


“Match Day is a positive, powerful day to celebrate charitable giving, said Janie DeVore Gillis, CACF Executive Director.  “On this day we focus on the power of philanthropy in our community and the joy in giving.”


Thank you to our 20 nonprofit partners for believing in the importance of endowment. Their efforts to promote Match Day were the reason we had so many people walk through the door and donate online.  Coffeyville Area Community Foundation would like to thank everyone who made this event such a success.  For more information go to www.coffeyvillefoundation.org
