Second Grow Green Match Day Event

grow green 228 non profit organizations were featured during last year’s Grow Green Match Day event, and this year the number grew to 32 non profits.

For a 12 hour period on Tuesday, representatives from non profit organizations  were located in the Colony Square Atrium, at 555 Poyntz Avenue, helping individuals to make donations.  When a donation was made, the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation “grew” it by 50%.

Last year was the first year for the event, and President and CEO of the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation, Vern Henricks said they raised $141,000 for non profits.  Their goal for this year was to beat $200,000 since there are more non profits participating.

The one major new aspect of this year’s match day, was that donations could be made online.
