#PhilanthropyFriday: 2019 NEPA Match Day is just two weeks away! 

Are you ready for the biggest day of giving in the Lackawanna County region’s history?

On Friday, May 3, 2019, 30 local nonprofit organizations will work together with the goal of making 2019 NEPA Match Day the biggest day of giving in the Lackawanna County region’s history!

These participating organizations will work together to fundraise in support of the critical work they do in our community, which makes our region a better place to call home. For every dollar raised by each of the participating nonprofits, Scranton Area Community Foundation will match the gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $1,000 for each nonprofit. For one day only, your $25 gift becomes $50, $100 becomes $200, and $500 becomes $1,000. The Scranton Area Community Foundation will also award an additional bonus of $5,000 to one participating organization based on specific criteria and participation.

Show support for the critical work that these nonprofit organizations are doing every day in Northeastern Pennsylvania, to make our region a better place. Learn about how each organization is celebrating 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. In 2018, NEPA Match Day raised over $217,000 in 24 hours for 25 participating local nonprofit organizations serving the people of Lackawanna County.

Be part of history and help to make 2019 NEPA Match Day the biggest day of giving in the Lackawanna County region’s history!


All gifts received by the Scranton Area Community Foundation will be divided evenly among the 30 participating nonprofit organizations.
