Community Foundation Announces Giving Tuesday Matching Gift Program

(Spencer County, Indiana) The Spencer County Community Foundation is hosting a Giving Tuesday event focused on building permanent endowment for Spencer County. This year, matching funds are available to help grow these funds.

Celebrated on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

The matching gift program is made possible by Lilly Endowment GIFT VII (Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow) for Spencer County.

On Giving Tuesday, gifts for Community Good or Unrestricted Funds will be matched $2 to $1. Matching dollars are available on a first come, first serve basis for qualifying gifts from individuals and groups made to an existing or new fund. The supply of matching dollars is limited.

Call the Foundation in advance at 812.649.5724 to use matching dollars to establish a new fund.

Gifts are being accepted online at CommunityFoundationAlliance.org/Spencer or from 8:30 to 4 at the Foundation office located at 2792 N. US Hwy 231 in Rockport.
