MatchDay with the WKCF

Multiply your impact on MatchDay, Nov. 30, 2021
MatchDay is an opportunity to help nonprofit organizations grow their funds exponentially--so they can fulfill promises to our local communities for years to come. Between November 15th and November 30th, the day known globally as Giving Tuesday and locally as MatchDay, make a gift to your favorite local nonprofits. The more you give, the more your favorite charities get from the $100,000 match pool. Donate online and celebrate with us throughout the day.
How It Works
- Donation Period: November 15 - November 30, 2021
How: Make your donations online, by mailed check, or in-person
- The $100,000 match pool will be divided among the participating organizations in proportion to the total amount raised. Agencies can earn up to 50 percent of the pool if contributions to their organization that day equal 50 percent or more of the total amount raised.
- As extra incentive, prize grants will be given throughout the day based on various criteria. Organizations can also earn prize grants if they raise the most money.
- Donations of $20-$2,000 per donor per organization are eligible for a match. Credit card, debit card, and ACH donations are encouraged through matchday.wkcf.org in order to help streamline our event. Donations are tax-deductible and can be divided among multiple organizations. All donors will receive a receipt detailing the amounts and benefiting organizations.
How to Give:
- Online: visit matchday.wkcf.org, search for your favorite organizations and add donations to your "shopping cart." Make your donations between November 15th - 30th through the secure online system via credit card, debit card, or ACH.
- In-Person: Join us November 30th from 7am - 7pm at the Hot Spot Event Center, 407 N. 8th in Garden City, to make contributions in person. Only check or electronic donations will be accepted, NO CASH.
- Mail: Contributions made by check can be mailed to WKCF at 402 N. Main, Garden City, KS 67846. To be eligible for a match, checks must be made out to WKCF with a giving form designating the benefitting organizations, and must be dated and postmarked November 15th - November 30th.
