Match Day

Date: Beginning November 15th - December 1st at 11:59:59 pm


The Garden City Family YMCA is asking for you to dig deep and give what you can. We still face monthly expenses, so we still need your contribution to our annual campaign. However, building our endowment is critical to our future. Match Day is a unique opportunity to benefit both of those needs, and to grow our endowment exponentially, so that we can enrich our people and programs for even greater impact, for years to come.

The 2020 match pool is $75,000, and it will be divided among participating organizations in proportion to the total amount raised. We can earn up to 50% of the pool if contributions to our organization that day equal 50% or more of the total amount raised by all participating organizations.

As extra incentive to donate, prize grants will be given throughout the day based on various criteria. We can also earn prize grants if we raise the most money. Donations $20-$2000* per donor, per organization are eligible for a match. Credit cards, debit cards and ACH payments will be accepted.

Donations are tax deductible and can be divided among multiple organizations. Receipts will be issued to each person donating.

    *Only donations between $20 and $2000 will be matched, however all donations will be accepted.
