The Sheridan County Community Foundation is pleased to report that more than 70 donors have contributed $60,265.22 towards this year’s 2023 November Match Month Campaign.
“We are especially grateful this week, the week of Thanksgiving, to express our sincere gratitude to the incredible donors who have supported our campaign so far,” said SCCF Executive Director Karl Pratt. “It’s been an exciting month as we open our email and snail mail each day and get to witness the incredible generosity for the future of Sheridan County!”
The Foundation has set a campaign goal of $70,000.00 to be raised locally and then matched by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation ($50k) and Patterson Family Foundation ($70k).
“Having both matching funders this year is a very unique and exciting occasion,” noted Pratt. “All donations, no matter their size, are essentially TRIPLED in value this year. As a donor, this is truly an amazing opportunity to see your gift have a greater impact!”
The annual Match Month campaign is focused on raising funds for the Foundation’s “Cultivate Sheridan County Fund.” This fund, which is endowed, will have the potential to grant $50k annually to area organizations bettering Sheridan County -- in perpetuity -- once it has grown to $1 million in principal funding. A successful campaign this year should enable the fund to reach that goal.
No donation amount is too big or too small for this challenge. All with an affinity for Sheridan County and the communities therein are encouraged to contribute and help make a difference in the lives of those in the area for years to come. Donations can be mailed to SCCF, PO Box 445, Hoxie, KS 67740; dropped off at Pratt Law Office, 736 Main St., in Hoxie or online at www.gnwkcf.org/donate/sheridan-match.
