Coffeyville Area Community Foundation Match Day 2018 was a Success!

Nov 29, 2018

Coffeyville Area Community Foundation hosted Match Day on Thursday, November 15th, at the Perkins Building, Downtown Coffeyville Plaza, to benefit 21 local nonprofit organizations and charitable funds.   $106,668.50 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.

Over 125 donors contributed 280 gifts designated to 21 local nonprofit organizations in one day. The total impact of $106,668.50 includes contributions, the matching funds, 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 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,” said 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 21 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.  “We are thankful for people in our community who give to help others.”


Thank you to our 21 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.
