Match Madness – Supporting our Local Nonprofits
Since its inception in 2016, the Match Madness Campaign has raised over $2.2 million dollars for local nonprofits to advance their missions. Created as an incentive program to support area nonprofits, Match Madness has helped our partners raise core operating funds by engaging their local donors in this special March fundraising campaign. Through Match Madness we seek to advance the health of our community and champion the work of local nonprofits by inspiring additional generosity.
Match Madness has expanded rapidly through the years. The campaign’s purpose is to support small to mid-sized nonprofits in raising core operating funds that are flexible enough to meet their specific needs. As an incentive to raise funds, the Partnership for Better Health offers a matching fund that is proportionately distributed to participating organizations based upon the amounts they raise. Following the completion of the campaign, each participating organization receives a lump sum payment of their donors’ contributions, plus a proportion of the Partnership’s matching fund. The campaign runs from March 1-31. Watch our website in February for a list of the this year’s participating organizations.
