Applications to Participate in
Greater Emporia Area Match Day
Match Day will return on November 16, 2020 for its seventh year. The greater Emporia Community Foundation (ECF) will accept applications from charitable organizations interested in participating in this year’s event starting February 4, 2020. Applications are available via the Foundation’s website at www.emporiacf.org, calling the office at 620-342-9304 or stopping by the ECF office. To qualify, organizations must have an annual operating budget of $150,000 or less. Applications may be mailed or delivered to the Emporia Community Foundation (ECF) office at 527 Commercial, Suite B until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 6th.
The Emporia Area Match Day event generated over $1.1 million for 33 greater Emporia area non-profits over the past six years. The ECF is excited to once again provide the community the opportunity of “paying it forward” to several charitable organizations through this one day experience that has become the biggest giving day of the year for the Emporia community.
The 2020 Emporia Area Match Day event will once again be held at the Flinthills Mall on Monday, November 16, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Last year’s event raised over $286,000 that was awarded to 25 charitable organizations on the nationally recognized day of Giving Tuesday (the Tuesday following Thanksgiving).
Match Day provides the opportunity to bring together diverse networks of people and charitable causes to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness in the service of changing our community and our world for the better. It is an opportunity at the end of the year to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving to work together for the good of the community.
For additional information about Match Day activities call the Foundation at (620) 342-9304 or checking their Facebook page or website at www.emporiacf.org. Additional information will also be released through the media as it becomes available.
