JCCF Giving Day to support seven local nonprofit with $60,000 match
Published: April 16, 2018 by Kim Minton, Vice President of Development
Seven participating local organizations will benefit from a $60,000 matching grant as the Johnson County Community Foundation (JCCF) launches its first ever Johnson County Giving Day on the Summer Solstice – Thursday, June 21, 2018 from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. This special one-day fundraising event, primarily driven by digital media, allows individuals, businesses and JCCF the opportunity to support local nonprofit organizations that are helping meet the needs of Johnson County.
The nonprofits participating in Giving Day include Franklin Education Connection, Gateway Services of Johnson County, Girls Inc. of Johnson County, Greenwood Christian Academy, Humane Society of Johnson County, Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County and United Way of Johnson County.
Giving Day will provide a platform for these participating nonprofits to share their stories, connect with new donors and become skillful in digital fundraising. They will gain knowledge that will help them build capacity for their organization, develop stewardship and grow their donor base.
The community is invited to participate by donating to one or more of these participating nonprofits. Every donation made on Giving Day will be proportionally matched among the seven organizations from a pool of funds made possible by JCCF and the Elba L. and Gene Portteus Branigin Foundation. Part of the money raised by the participating agencies stays in their endowment fund at JCCF and part of it goes right back out to them to support current needs.
