Van Wert, OH  November 26, 2018 –

#GivingTuesday is November 27 and to kick off the giving season we want to inspire people to collaborate and give back. #GivingTuesday is 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 celebrates giving by matching donations made to VWCF Charitable Organization Endowment Funds on #GivingTuesday (this day only), the match will be up to $10,000 per fund.

Individuals and businesses have the opportunity to donate to one or multiple VWCF Charitable Organization Endowment Funds, essentially doubling your gift with the match of The Foundation.  A Charitable Organization Fund is established by a charitable organization to provide support for the agency’s exempt purposes. The original gifted amount (principal) is permanently preserved. Income generated from your gift benefits the organization now and into the future.

Those interested in giving to The Van Wert County Foundation’s  #GivingTuesday initiative can donate through social media, the links provided below or by check or cash donation to The Van Wert County Foundation office located at 138 E. Main St., Van Wert, OH  from 8:30 am – 4 pm.

The following funds are open for donation with VWCF match today only (November 27).
