Match Madness Campaign

March 1, 2020

The Drew Michael Taylor Foundation has been given a unique opportunity to raise funds. The Partnership for Better Health is launching Match Madness, a large matching gift campaign, and we’ve been invited to participate. The purpose of Match Madness is to provide organizations with a special spring fundraising opportunity from March 1-31, 2020.  Donations to the Drew Michael Taylor Foundation (through the Partnership for Better Health campaign) can be made online through this link

If you prefer to donate by sending a check, instead of online, please make checks payable to the Partnership for Better Health (with Drew Michael Taylor Foundation in the memo line) and mail checks to the Partnership for Better Health, 274 Wilson St., Carlisle, PA 17013.  Remember that the campaign runs from March 1 – 31 so please send your check in a timely fashion.

The Partnership for Better Health, M&T Bank and The Josiah W. and Bessie H. Kline Foundation are offering $80,000 in funds that may be matched by gifts that individual donors make to the Drew Michael Taylor Foundation through the Partnership for Better Health.

We will receive a one-to-one match for the first $1,000 raised and are planning to designate these funds for our Blue Butterfly Ball event (unless a donor requests a different use for the funds).

We will also receive a proportion of the $80,000 stretch fund, based upon what we raise. For example, if we raise 5 percent of the total funds raised by all participating organizations, we will receive 5 percent of the stretch fund.

The Partnership for Better Health will pass 100% of your charitable contribution directly on to Drew Michael Taylor Foundation. The Partnership will receive no revenue from the match campaign.

Please help us spread the word! Invite your friends, family and colleagues to join you in donating to Drew Michael Taylor Foundation through this campaign between March 1 and 31, 2020. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of those we serve.

Contact us at [email protected] if you have questions about Match Madness. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
