12/06/2018

(KNZA)--Giving has in fact continued to grow, as exemplified during the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation’s third annual Give to Grow Match Day, held Friday, Nov. 23, both online and in-person at a downtown Sabetha walk-in location. This year’s event raised a total of $138,065, the highest raised yet in the three years of Give to Grow.

At the walk-in site, donors registered for a drawing that awarded an extra $500 to the person’s chosen organization. Drawings took place every hour for eight hours, with prize money given away totaling $4,000.

By the end of the day, 365 monetary gifts by 141 individual donors totaling $$73,065.07 had been given. Average dollars given per donor was $518.19.

Added to the day’s total was $61,000 in matching funds, bringing the grand total distributed to 35 area non-profits and projects a little more than $138,065.

The top three non-profits receiving donations were the following: Sabetha Health and wellness, $23,975; Neighbor-2-Neighbor/Kids Kloset, $9,875; and The Main Event, $7,900.
