HOISINGTON — The Kans for Kids Fighting Cancer Foundation is one of over 30 non-profits participating in Give Where You Live Giving Day. The Golden Belt Community Foundation will host its first-ever Giving Day on Tuesday, Dec. 2. This is an important one-day event to grow non-profit endowments exponentially.
On Dec. 2 any gifts to organizational endowment funds may be eligible for matching funds. The Golden Belt Community Foundation has secured matching funds of $30,000, and will match donations proportionally to the total amount of funds raised with a matching pool of $30,000. For example, if an endowment fund receives 10 percent of all gifts, then that organization will receive 10 percent of the matching funds ($30,000 x 10 percent = $3,000)
Golden Belt Community Foundation will accept gifts at its Great Bend office and will have other locations in La Crosse, Larned and St. John for that day only to receive gifts.
Additionally, anyone can bring a gift to Debbie or Duane Reif, Kans for Kids directors, any time before Dec. 2 and it will be delivered to the Community Foundation on Dec. 2. The more gifts given to Kans for Kids’s endowment fund, the more proportional match money will be received.
As an added incentive, Kans for Kids stated that anyone contributing to the Kans for Kids Endowment during this particular campaign only will have their name entered into a drawing for a one-night stay in a family suite at Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City.
“We are very excited to be included in Give Where You Live Giving Day. This is a great opportunity to grow the Kans for Kids endowment that will provide a secure future for our organization,” said Debbie Reif, Kans for Kids director.
