Save the Date: NEPA Match Day

For the 3rd year in a row, the first Friday in May will be NEPA Match Day! The Scranton Area Community Foundation has assembled a fantastic group of 25 nonprofit agencies serving the people of Lackawanna County that have volunteered to be part of the 2017 NEPA Match Day collective. Maternal & Family Health Services is proud to be one of these 25 non-profits in 2017.

In the months leading up to May 5, 2017, the collective will work together to spread the word about the critical work being done in our region by these nonprofits. Then, on May 5th, for every dollar you donate to one of the participating partners, the Scranton Area Community Foundation will match your donation…dollar-for-dollar, up to $1,000 for EACH nonprofit. For one day, your $25 gift becomes $50, $100 becomes $200, and the support you give will stay in our region.

By working together for 24 hours, we have the ability to strengthen our community and the nonprofits that strive to make our community a better place to live by over $50,000! For the past two years, NEPA Match Day exceeded the $50,000 goal by more than $30,000 but the success of NEPA Match Day depends entirely on the gifts you make to the NEPA Match Day collective on May 5th.

You can learn more about Match Day by visiting the Scranton Area Foundation’s website.
