Community Foundation Offers Matching Gift Opportunity
The Community Foundation of Noble County (CFNC) is offering a matching gift opportunity…an important ingredient in the Philanthropic Stone Soup that they are cooking up.
The CFNC Board of Directors is offering matching dollars for gifts made to endowment funds held at the Foundation. Beginning November 1, 2022 and running through May 1, 2023, the Foundation will match $1 for $1, up to $5,000 per fund. The Foundation has a total of $50,000 to contribute to the match, so the earlier donations are made, the more likely they are to qualify for the match.
CFNC has been on a mission throughout 2022 to create a great recipe for tomorrow in Noble County. The classic folktale, Stone Soup, illustrates that perfectly! A thriving community is created only by everyone pitching in, and generous donations to the Foundation benefit our community every day.
The CFNC match is an important ingredient in the Philanthropic Stone Soup receipt, but it’s not the only one. Year-end gifts to the endowment funds, fund representatives, grants committees and all the things that come together to address a variety of local needs to establish funds that make a difference. Just like in Stone Soup, there is tremendous impact when we pool our resources—impact that benefits the whole community!

You’ll receive a “thank you” for your donation via USPS mail or instantly from the online portal, which you can use to file for a tax deduction, if eligible. The match will be automatically applied to qualifying endowment funds, until all funds are exhausted.
