Giving Day Guidelines

EVENT DETAILS
 
  • Match Day is scheduled from 7am to 6:30 pm on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, in the Frankfort City Library, 104 East 2nd Street.  (Online gifts between 12:00 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. on December 3)
  • 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 $15,000 are available to provide a 50% match up to $2,500 per organization.  The matching funds have been provided by First National Bank in Frankfort - $5,000, and Frankfort Community Foundation - $10,000.
  • Donors will select which organization fund(s) to support.  100% of their donation will go to the organization’s FCF 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 $1,000 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 FCF fund.  Organization X will receive a $500 match from FCF.  

  • Combined donations up to a total of $5,000 will be matched at 50%, giving a maximum of $2,500 in matching funds to any one organization.
  • 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 made payable to FCF 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 12/03/19.  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 Frankfort Gives Match Day – December 3, 2019.  
 
PRIZE INCENTIVES (Only applies to donors who make gifts in person at the Public Library)
 
  • Throughout the event, an individual donor will be randomly chosen every hour (out of that hour’s donations) to win extra green.  An additional $50 will be given to the participating charity identified by the donor.
