Match Day Guidelines

 
Match Day is scheduled from 7am to 5:30 pm on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, in the Community Center, 4 Public Square, Blue Rapids.  (Online gifts between 12:00 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. on June 4)
 
Representatives of your organization are encouraged to be on site throughout the event, but this is not a 
requirement for participation.
 
DONATION INFORMATION
 
Matching funds of $25,000 are available to provide a 50% match on up to $6,000 (for a $3,000 match) per organization as long as match funds last.  ALL MATCH funds will be distributed.  If funds remain after donations are tallied, surplus monies will be given to organizations prorated on the basis of total gifts per group.
 
Donors will select which organization fund(s) to support.  100% of their donation will go to the organization’s BRCF fund.  Although gifts of any amount are welcome and encouraged, donations of a minimum of $25 will receive a local match at 50¢ on the dollar up to a maximum of $3,000 per charitable organization per donor.  
 
For example: Jane Doe makes a $1,000 donation to Organization X, $1,000 will go to the Organization X BRCF fund.  Organization X will receive a $500 match from FCF.  If Jane Doe makes a $4,000 donation to 
Organization X, the matching grant from BRCF will be $1,500. 
 
If Jane Doe donates $3,500 to Organization X and $1,500 to Organization Y, then the Organization X match will be $1,500 and the Organization Y match will be $750.
 
Combined donations up to a total of $6,000 will be matched at 50%, giving a maximum of $3,000 in matching funds to any one organization, unless excess funds are allocated at the end of the day.  
 
Donations are tax deductible. 
If donors provide an email address, all gifts (cash, check and online) will generate a receipt at the time of the donation and an additional receipt will not be mailed.  If no email address is provided, donations made by cash or check will receive a receipt letter after the event.  Cash gifts will also receive a hand written receipt at the event.
 
Each individual donor should write one check dated June 4, 2019 and made payable to BRCF for a total of all gifts to various agencies.  A separate form will be used to indicate which fund(s) will benefit.  
 
Donations by participating organizations to their own fund will not qualify for the match or incentive prizes.  
 
Donors are encouraged to make gifts in person at the event.  If a donor is not able to attend the event and does not want to make an online gift remotely, another individual may bring a gift in for them.  Checks should be dated 6/4/19.
 
Volunteers will be available at the event to accept check & cash gifts as well as assist with online donations.
 
Donations are irrevocable and must be made on Circle of Giving Match Day – June 4, 2019.  
 
PRIZE INCENTIVES (Only applies to donors who make gifts in person at the Community Center)
 
Throughout the event, an individual donor will be randomly chosen every hour (out of that hour’s donations) to win extra green.  An additional $100 will be given to the participating charity identified by the donor.  Donations brought in by another individual on behalf of a donor do not qualify.
 
Decisions made by the Blue Rapids Community Foundation board of directors will govern in all cases if questions arise.
