Please support the McPherson Public Library during the 9th annual Match Week!

Match Week, March 4-8, holds an incredible opportunity for the McPherson Public Library. During the week, McPherson County Community Foundation will match donations made to our endowment fund—our long-term savings and program source—and with your help, we could potentially receive a large portion of the $150,000 match available!

Here’s how the week works:

  • Mark your calendar so you are sure to participate.

Dates: Monday, March 4 – Friday, March 8, 2024
Place: McPherson County Community Foundation, 1233 N. Main, McPherson, or online!

  • Gifting options:

    • Cash or Check: You may drop off your gift Monday – Thursday between 9 am – 4 pm.  Please make checks payable to MCCF. You may also drop off your checks at the library anytime Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.

    • Mail: You may mail your check to the Foundation. All gifts must be postmarked no later than March 4. Please make checks payable to MCCF.

    • Online credit card: Please CLICK HERE to donate to our organization online.

    • Stock transfer: Please contact MCCF’s office for instructions.

    • Use your Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA to make a Qualified Charitable Distribution. To qualify for Match Week, simply complete a donation form and return it by March 4. Actual funds from your account need only be transferred to the Foundation by December 31, 2024. For more information or clarification, call Becky Goss or Michelle Huddle at the Foundation, at 620.245.9070.
    • A donor-advised fund held at MCCF or another organization: If it’s coming from another organization, MCCF will allow you to pledge the gift and send the distribution as soon as they can process it.
  • Matching funds will be given to our organization based on a proportional basis. For example, if $300,000 is raised during the week and our organization receives 10% of the total donations, we will receive $10,000 to use for immediate needs.

  • A donor may give to multiple organizations but only needs to write one check for the total gift. A separate form will be used to indicate which endowment(s) will benefit.

Building our endowment is critical for our future. Match Week is an opportunity to dig deeper and grow our endowment helping us enrich our people and programs for an even greater impact.

Matching funds are made possible by: MCCF Community Fund and the Gaeddert Family Fund
