MADISON, Indiana – As part of its 30th Anniversary year, the Community Foundation of Madison & Jefferson County (CFMJC) is offering a donation matching program for a limited time.
Donations to permanent endowments at the Community Foundation will be matched by 30% until all the available matching funds are used. The maximum match a donor can receive is $6,000. Anyone wishing to take advantage of the matching program is encouraged to donate soon as previous matching opportunities have disappeared quickly.
“We are so thankful for the community’s generous support through our 30-year history,” said CFMJC President & CEO Bill Barnes. “Donors really like utilizing matching money to increase the impact of their donations. Now is a great time to give to an existing permanent endowment or start a new one to make an impact on our next 30 years and beyond.”
“We are so thankful for the community’s generous support through our 30-year history.”
