Match Day FB


Help Us Secure a $20,000 Match on Match Day, May 1

Match Day on Wednesday, May 1, holds incredible opportunity for the Cosmosphere. On that day, Hutchinson Community Foundation will match donations made to our endowment fund—our long-term savings—and with your help, we could potentially receive a $20,000 match.

Here’s how Match Day works:

  • Come to the event and make a donation.
    Date: Wednesday, May 1
    Time:  10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
    Place: Wiley Building, First Avenue and Main Street or donate online at hutchcf.org anytime from midnight to 11:59 p.m.
  • The 2024 match pool is $100,000, and it will be divided among 38 participating organizations in proportion to the total amount raised. We can earn up to 20 percent of the pool ($20,000) if contributions to our organization that day equal 20 percent or more of the total amount raised.
  • As extra incentive to come to the Wiley Building, hourly prize grants will be given throughout the day, drawn from the previous hour’s donors contributing in person. We can also earn prize grants if we have the most individual donors.
  • Cash, credit cards and checks made payable to Hutchinson Community Foundation and dated May 1 will be accepted.
  • Donations are tax deductible and can be divided among multiple organizations. One receipt will be issued to each individual making a donation.

Building our endowment is critical for our future, but we still face monthly expenses. So we still need contributions to our annual campaign. Match Day is an opportunity to dig deeper, to grow our endowment exponentially, so that we can enrich our people and programs for even greater impact.Your gift is vital for helping us maximize the match.
