Greater Sabetha Community Foundation's First Giving Day Deemed a Huge Success!

Greater Sabetha Community Foundation's First Giving Day Deemed a Huge Success!

SABETHA, KS - November 25, 2016 - In 24 hours of giving, $107,088.33 was donated to area nonprofits and projects that are a part of the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation.  A $25,000 match was divided up between the 21 nonprofits which brings the total to more than $132,000. 

At the walk-in site, donors registered for a drawing that awarded an extra $50.00 to the person’s chosen organization. Drawings took place every hour for 12 hours. 

Organizer of the event, Leslie Scoby said that “many people were excited to be able to make donations to local organizations and projects. As this idea catches on, we expect to have an even bigger giving day next year!

Sabetha’s GIVE TO GROW Match Day website (www.givetogrowday.com), powered by Evergreen Giving Day Solutions, made it possible for donors from Kansas, Texas, California, Missouri and Arizona to make donations during the 24 hour event.

The event was sponsored by the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation which is a vehicle for people of all means to make a lasting difference in their local community.  All donations are tax deductible and help fund local projects or existing nonprofits.  GSCF was established less than one year ago and is operated by a 13 member board of directors.  The asset base of the local foundation is now over $1.5 million.  GSCF is an affiliate of Greater Manhattan Community Foundation.  GSCF can assist other organizations or people with ideas for community projects as well as help individuals establish donor advised funds which allows a donor to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit and make personal planned giving decisions over time. 

GSCF will hold a Community Celebration Gala on January 14 at The Main Event to honor the charitable organizations in the area, celebrate the community and celebrate the first GIVE TO GROW Match Day.
