What is Match Madness?

This is a new initiative by the Wabash Valley Community Foundation. In this first year, they only chose 6 participants in the county, and the Community Theatre of Clay County was delighted to be one of the accepted applicants!

This is a program that requires our nonprofit organization to create an endowment. During the time period of Match Madness, any donation will be matched $1 for $1 up to $5,000. That means we have the potential to START our endowment with $10,000! We couldn’t be more excited!

What is an Endowment?

Many of us had to ask the same question! An endowment is an amount of money or property given to a nonprofit organization that then gets returns on that money annually. That means your gift today could still be giving gifts to the theatre decades from now!

How Long Does This Matching Period Last?

You can give as early as November 3 and as late as March 31, 2024. The earlier you give, the better though? Why is that? If you donate $10 (the minimum donation) or more, you will automatically be considered a member of the Community Theatre of Clay County. That will give you the the right to vote for our new board members at our January annual meeting. This means you can help shape both the financial and personnel aspects of the theatre with a a single gift!
