VWCF Matches Donations Made on #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday was December 3 it’s known as a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

The Van Wert County Foundation celebrated giving by matching donations (up to $10,000 per fund) made to VWCF Charitable Organization Endowment Funds on #GivingTuesday.  Individuals and businesses donated to one or multiple VWCF Charitable Organization Endowment Funds, essentially doubling the gift with the match. Those who gave to The Van Wert County Foundation’s  #GivingTuesday initiative donated online and brought donations to the office. 

The initiative was a success with a total endowed amount of $98,808.00 with VWCF match.  Plans for #GivingTuesday 2020 (December 1, 2020) are already in the works.
