APPLY NOW To Participate In 2019 NEPA Match Day!


In 2018, NEPA Match Day made history by raising over $217,000 in 24 hours for 25 participating local nonprofit organizations serving the people of Lackawanna County.

This year, mark your calendars for Friday, May 3, 2019, as we work together to make the first Friday in May the biggest day of giving in the Lackawanna County region’s history through the 2019 NEPA Match Day!

NEPA Match Day was established by the Scranton Area Community Foundation in 2015 as a way to help nonprofit organizations serving our community raise awareness about their organization, engage new and existing donors, and raise much-needed capital to build organizational capacity. Promoted as a fun way to encourage philanthropy in the community, NEPA Match Day aims to demonstrate how even small gifts make a big difference.

The Scranton Area Community Foundation is providing an opportunity this year for 30 local nonprofit organizations to join in on the excitement while providing a dollar-for-dollar match for the first $1,000 raised by each participating nonprofit. An additional bonus of $5,000 will be awarded to one participating organization based on specific criteria and participation.

In addition, our nonprofit participants of 2019 NEPA Match Day will have the opportunity to participate in a FREE 3-hour communications training on Friday, March 8, 2019, ALOUD: A Workshop for Live Storytelling, facilitated by The Goodman Center and provided by the Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence, through funding from the Scranton Area Community Foundation and Moses Taylor Foundation.

Participation in NEPA Match Day is open on a first-come, first served basis to direct service 501(c)(3) agencies serving the people of the Lackawanna County region.

The first 30 qualified nonprofit organizations to submit completed applications will be accepted to participate in the 2019 NEPA Match Day.
