Announcing Match Madness: An Agency Endowment Matching Program
Match Madness is Coming
The Wabash Valley Community Foundation has announced a new pilot program to benefit eligible nonprofit organizations in Clay, Sullivan and Vigo counties.
Match Madness, an agency endowment matching program, will launch this fall to help nonprofit organizations in the Wabash Valley create financial longevity and sustainability plans, allowing them to flourish. From November 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024, up to 24 organizations will receive $1-for-$1 matches up to $5,000, to all new contributions made to a new or existing agency endowment fund with the Community Foundation.
“In creating this matching challenge, the Community Foundation has developed an exciting way to support our local nonprofit organizations,” said Jonathan Eilbracht, Community Engagement Officer for Clay County. “We chose to coincide with college basketball season to encourage individuals to support their favorite nonprofit organizations as they follow the excitement on the journey to March Madness. This match is a great way for our nonprofit community to start or grow agency endowment funds that will help their organization or agency become more sustainable.”
Deadline to Apply is the 15th of Each Month
The Community Foundation is now offering Seed Grants to further fulfill the objectives of the Terre Haute Community Plan, “See You in Terre Haute”. Seed grants assist projects in their preliminary stages, helping cover the groundwork costs necessary for larger projects. These grants will help expand programs that are developed to encourage population growth and/or increase per capita personal income. The Wabash Valley Community Foundation is able to provide opportunities and funding for various entities in the community through this “See You in Terre Haute” Community Plan.
The grant opportunities mirror the integral aspects outlined in the Community Plan. The categories include economic development, health & wellness, infrastructure, quality of life, talent attraction & retention and tourism.
