Join us for Match Madness 2015!
Give a gift to Saint Francis Community Services and let the Greater Salina Community Foundation make it greater – at Match Madness!
Join us on March 10, 2015, from 7a.m. to 7p.m. at Martinelli’s Little Italy (158 S. Santa Fe Ave., Salina) for the fourth annual Match Madness event hosted by the Community Foundation. This one-day event is designed to generate new gifts to our endowed fund for long-term support, as well as current gifts to help us meet immediate needs.
Here is how it works:
Players, ahem - Donors stop by Martinelli’s Little Italy that day to “fill out their bracket.” Mark your donation for Saint Francis Community Services. Your gift will go to our endowed fund at the Community Foundation for permanent support of Saint Francis Community Services’ work. The Community Foundation will provide a matching gift in the form of an outright grant back to us that we can use right away. Every new endowed donation (up to a maximum of $2,000 per organization per person) will receive a match! Donations will be matched proportionally up to 50%.
If “traveling” down to Martinelli’s Little Italy, isn’t in your game plan, online donations will be matched from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on March 10, 2015. Log on to www.gscf.org to donate online.
A $75,000 match pool is available. Additional $100 grants will be made every hour throughout the day. The three organizations that have the most in-person donors at Martinelli’s Little Italy will receive a “rebound” bonus grant of $500 for 1st place, $200 for 2nd place and $100 for 3rd place.
Saint Francis Community Services representatives will be on-site at the event from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to “assist” you and offer promotional items
Let’s make a SLAM DUNK for Saint Francis this year!
