For 24 hours on May 6th, the Scranton Area Community Foundation is providing a dollar for dollar match up to the first $1,000 raised by EACH member of the NEPA Match Day collective!

The Scranton Area Community Foundation is excited to announce the 2nd annual NEPA Match Day, which will be held Friday, May 6, 2016. NEPA Match Day is an exciting and original initiative meant to foster teamwork between nonprofit agencies while helping to build program capacity. It’s a great way for us to show our support for our region’s nonprofits and demonstrate the Foundation’s belief that when we work together, we are stronger.

Our nonprofit partners do phenomenal work in our region. The efforts of their volunteers and employees provide assistance, education, and support services that touch nearly every facet of life and make NEPA a better place to live. On May 6th, with the generosity of our region, we can send over $50,000.00 to strengthen our nonprofits and WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!
