Match Day! We need your help!


Miles of Smiles Match Day


Help Us Secure a $25,000 Match on Match Day, November 28


Match Day on Tuesday, November 28, holds incredible opportunity for Miles of Smiles. On that day, Western Kansas Community Foundation will match donations made to our organization, and with your help, we could potentially receive a $25,000 match.


Here’s how Match Day works:


  • Come to the event and make a donation.
    Date:   Tuesday, November 28
    Time:  7 a.m. – 7 p.m. on-site
    Place: Western Kansas Community Foundation, 402 N. Main

or donate online at anytime from 12 a.m.-11:59 p.m.

  • The 2017 match pool is $50,000, and it will be divided among participating organizations in proportion to the total amount raised. We can earn up to 50 percent of the pool if contributions to our organization that day equal 50 percent or more of the total amount raised.
  • As extra incentive to donate in person, hourly prize grants will be given throughout the day, drawn from the previous hour’s donors contributing in person.  We can also earn prize grants if we raise the most money or have the most individual donors.
  • Donations of $20-$2,000 per person per organization are eligible for a match. Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted.
  • Donations are tax deductible and can be divided among multiple organizations. Checks must be made payable to Western Kansas Community Foundation. One receipt will be issued to each individual making a donation.

Building our endowment is critical for our future, but we still face monthly expenses, so we still need contributions to our annual campaign. Match Day is an opportunity to dig deeper, to grow our endowment exponentially, so that we can enrich our people and programs for even greater impact. Your gift is vital for helping us maximize the match.
