Wamego Hospital Foundation is a partnering with the Wamego Community Foundation on the inaugural Wamego Match Day, Friday, June 7, 2019. On that day, the Wamego Community Foundation will match donations made by our citizens to the Wamego Hospital Foundation fund at .50 cents per $1. That means your donation of up to $1,000 to the charity of your choice goes 50 percent farther to meeting the needs of those the organization serves.
Here’s how it works:
- Come to the event on June 7, 2019 and donate. Visit Iron Clad, 427 Lincoln Ave., Wamego, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Gifts can be made by cash, check or online using a credit card. When donating by check, one check must be made payable for all donations to the Wamego Community Foundation. Donors will designate the fund distribution on a separate form. Cash and check gifts should be made in person at the event. Credit cards are also accepted at the event.
- Online Match Day gifts made between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on June 7 will also qualify for matching amounts. Visit wamegomatchday.com.
- Individual contributions to charitable funds ranging from $25 to $1,000 will receive a local match at $.50 per $1, so a $1,000 gift will receive a $500 local match. If a donor gives a $5,000 gift split evenly between five organizations, each group would be eligible to receive an additional $500 in matching funds.
- Gifts made in person at Iron Clad will qualify for prize money incentives for Wamego Hospital Foundation.
