NEPA Match Day 2016 Criteria Announcement

The First Friday in May is NEPA Match Day!

Due to the success of last year’s first-ever NEPA Match Day, we are excited to announce that the 2nd Annual NEPA Match Day will be held on Friday, May 6, 2016.

Our goal this year is to help 25 nonprofits (501(c)(3)s) serving Lackawanna County match the funding they raise. For each dollar your organization raises on May 6th, the Foundation will provide a dollar-for dollar match, up to $1,000 per organization.

So, if you raise $1,500 on May 6, your total will be $2,500!

PLEASE NOTE:  This is NOT an invitation to join the NEPA Match Day collective. If your organization is not already signed up for the Foundation’s nonprofit email list, you should sign up as soon as possible. The official invitation to join the NEPA Match Day collective will be published during the week of January 25th through the Foundation’s email list, website, and social media pages (we wanted to give you advance notice about what you will need to participate this year so you can have it ready for the official invitation). Once the official invitation is published, we will accept the first 25 organizations that meet the listed criteria and you will receive a notification email that your organization is part of the 2016 collective.
