“From now through Jan. 15, 2019, every dollar donated by individuals (non-corporate) to one of our Endowed funds or Scholarship funds will receive an additional 50% matching donation from the Frankenmuth Community Foundation, up to a maximum donation match of $5,000,” said Executive Director Jonathan Webb.

“This is the first time we’ve ever offered this kind of matching grant program, and we’re very hopeful it will encourage even more giving this holiday season,” he added. For years, through the generosity of local donors, the Frankenmuth Community Foundation has awarded grants to support a myriad of relevant and meaningful projects aimed at enriching the quality of life in the greater Frankenmuth area.

Frankenmuth-area residents will receive a mailing in the coming weeks that explains the “Giving 150% to Our Community” program and provides a donor form and return envelope. For more information on funds and online donations visit www.frankenmuthfoundation.org, or simply mail your donation to Frankenmuth Community Foundation, P.O. Box 386, Frankenmuth, MI 48734. Be sure to specify which fund(s) you would like to support with your donation.

Webb emphasized again that matching funds are only available for individual (non-corporate) donations up to a maximum donation match of $5,000, and the match is only available for Endowed funds or Scholarship funds (no Pass-Through accounts). “This is a tremendous opportunity to magnify the impact of your donation by 50%, while helping your favorite charitable organization and the Frankenmuth Community Foundation to better the lives of everyone in our community.”
