Match Day on Wednesday, March 4, holds incredible opportunity for the McPherson Arts Alliance. On that day, McPherson County Community Foundation will match donations made to our endowment fund—our long-term savings—and with your help, we could potentially receive up to $8,000 of the $40,000 match available. Here’s how Match Day works:
Date: Wednesday, March 4 Time: 7 am – 6 pm Place: McPherson County Community Foundation, 206 S. Main, McPherson
Building our endowment is critical for our future, but we still face monthly expenses. So we still need contributions to our annual campaign. Match Day is a one-time opportunity to dig deeper, to grow our endowment exponentially, so that we can enrich our people and programs for even greater impact. Your gift is vital for helping us maximize the match.
