Friday marks the 11th annual Grow Green Match Day in Manhattan.
It’s the day when donations made through the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation to participating nonprofit endowed funds receive a 50% match. Last year, about $1.7 million was raised for 78 area organizations. GMCF President Vern Henricks says this year there are 95 participating nonprofits.
Henricks says once again the effort is being aided by charitable contributions through Phil Howe and the Howe Family Foundation.
Donations can be made online at GrowGreenManhattan.com until midnight. You can also give in person between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the Colony Square Atrium at 555 Poyntz Ave.
Check donations will also be accepted by mail.
- Must be postmarked on or before 4/21/23 and must include a completed 2023 Grow Green Match Day Giving Form.
- Mail to: GMCF, P.O. Box 1127, Manhattan, KS 66505
