Match Day Guidelines

EVENT DETAILS

  • Match Day is scheduled from 7 am to 5:30 pm on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, in the Junction City Municipal Building Auditorium, 700 N. Jefferson Street.  (Online gifts can be made at www.gearymatchday.com between 12:00 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 13th)
  • Representatives of your organization are encouraged to be on site throughout the event, but this is not a requirement for participation.  We will be practicing COVID-19 Safety precautions, which are outlined on a separate handout.  Organizations will be able to set up table displays the evening before match day.

DONATION INFORMATION

  • Matching funds of up to $130,000 are available to provide a 50% match up to $7,500 per organization.  A Special thank you to the R2B4 Bramlage Family Foundation who will provide up to $100,000 in matching funds!  And to the following for providing the following matching funds:  Central Charities Foundation, $20,000, and Crosby Foundation, $10,000.  We could not hold this match day without all of these generous donors.
  • Donors will select which organization fund(s) to support.  100% of their donation will go to the organization’s GGCF fund.  Although gifts of any amount are welcome and encouraged, donations of a minimum of $25 will receive a local match at 50¢ on the dollar up to a maximum of $1,000 per charitable organization per donor.  

For example: Jane Doe makes a $1,000 donation to Organization X, $1,000 will go to the Organization X MCF fund.  Organization X will receive a $500 match from GGCF.  If Jane Doe makes a $2,500 donation to Organization X, the matching grant from GGCF will be $500.

  • Combined donations up to a total of $15,000 will be matched at 50%, giving a maximum of $7,500 in matching funds to any one organization.  
  • Donations are tax deductible.  If donors provide an email address, all gifts (cash, check and online) will generate a receipt at the time of the donation and an additional receipt will not be mailed.  If no email address is provided, donations made by cash or check will receive a receipt letter after the event.  Cash gifts will also receive a hand written receipt at the event.
  • Each individual donor should write one check made payable to GGCF for a total of all gifts to various agencies.  A separate form will be used to indicate which fund(s) will benefit.
  • Donations by participating organizations to their own fund will not qualify for the match or incentive prizes.  
  • With the current pandemic, donors may wish to mail checks dated 10/13/2020 and postmarked on or before October 13 to P.O. Box 411, Junction City, KS  66441.   Gifts can also be made in person at the event.  If a donor is not able to attend the event and does not want to mail or make an online gift remotely, another individual may bring a gift in for them.  Checks should be dated 10/13/2020.
  • Volunteers will be available at the event to accept check & cash gifts as well as assist with online donations.
  • Donations are irrevocable and must be made on Geary Community Match Day – October 13, 2020.  

PRIZE INCENTIVES (Only applies to donors who make gifts in person at the Municipal Building)

  • Throughout the event, an individual donor will be randomly chosen every hour (out of that hour’s donations) to win extra green.  An additional $50 will be given to the participating charity identified by the donor.
