First Ever NEPA Match Day!

Match Day 2015 logoThe Scranton Area Community Foundation is excited to announce the first ever NEPA Match Day! Held this year on the First Friday in May: 5/1/2015, NEPA Match Day is an exciting and original initiative.  It’s also a great way for us to show our support for our region’s nonprofits and our belief that when we work together, we are stronger.
On May 1, 2015, NEPA Match Day, The Scranton Area Community Foundation is providing a $25,000.00 match to 25 outstanding nonprofit agencies that serve Lackawanna County.  For every dollar raised by each of these nonprofits on May 1, the Scranton Area Community Foundation is going to provide a dollar for dollar match up to the first $1,000 raised!  Our partners are working together as a collective on this important day, hosting joint events and running special activities throughout our region.
Our nonprofit partners do phenomenal work in our region.  The efforts of their volunteers and employees provide assistance, education, and support services that touch nearly every facet of life and truly make NEPA a better place to live.  On May 1st, with the generosity of our region, we can provide over $50,000 to strengthen our nonprofits which strengthen our community.
