The Chautauqua Region Community Foundation is asking the public to help give away $5,000 during its first ever #BigMatchDay.
On Tuesday, November 29, all donations received by the Community Foundation for local charities or established funds at the Foundation will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $25 per gift until the pool of $5,000 matching funds is exhausted. All donations collected, and the matching funds, will be granted directly to the charitable organization, or fund, for immediate use.
Donations for #BigMatchDay will be accepted in person at the Foundation, by credit card on its secure website, or over the phone between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on November 29.
As a kick off to #BigMatchDay and in celebration of the community members and organizations that give back in so many ways throughout the year, the Foundation will also host an Open House from 9 a.m. until Noon on November 29. Light refreshments will be served and WJTN’s Dennis Webster will broadcast live.
The Community Foundation is located at 418 Spring Street in Jamestown. For more information regarding #BigMatchDay, and official rules for participation, contact the Foundation at (716) 661-3390 or visit crcfonline.org.
