The Sheridan County Community Foundation has raised $143,152.41 in total contributions for its November 2021 Match Month campaign. The annual “Match Month” challenge, which is sponsored by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, Logan, provides up to $50,000 in $1 for $1 funding as well as $20,000 and $5,000 in incentive funding for reaching the goal for the participating foundations’ (SCCF) local operational endowment and unrestricted operational funds, respectively.
This is the sixth challenge in which SCCF has participated and surpassed the local fundraising goal, this year raising $68,152.41 locally. These funds will be added to SCCF’s “Cultivate Sheridan County” endowment fund (think savings/investment account) which will be made available for area organizations to apply for grant funding in the future. With the funds raised and matching contributions this year, the endowment fund balance will sit at just over $850,000.
“Thank you again to the nearly 70 donors who helped us reach and surpass our local goal,” said Karl Pratt, board liaison. “The success of this campaign is truly evident of the incredible generosity and foresight of these donors who believe in the future betterment of Sheridan County. A huge THANK YOU also to the Dane G. Hansen Foundation for their continued support in helping us develop and grow our endowment fund which will benefit residents of Sheridan County in perpetuity!”
