(KMZA)--The Nemaha County STEP Foundation's third annual STEP-Up Nemaha Match Day set a new record.

The event was held on August 25, with donations taken in-person and on-line.

STEP Treasurer Tim Rottinghaus shared, “With online and in person donations on Match Day totaling $133,425, a 77% increase over last year, we couldn’t be happier. After adding in the $70,000 matching grant from the Patterson Family Foundation and donations from our generous STEP-Up Supporters the day- grand total was $234,900. We truly thank the Patterson Family, our STEP-Up Supporters, and all who donated on that day.”

Executive Director Tory Jost said all twenty-nine funds received donations, which ranged from $50 to $28,263. Eight funds were successful in securing the maximum $4,000 match.

The General Endowment Fund brought in the most overall donations with $28,263.69. That was followed by the Sts. Peter and Paul School Fund with $20,325, and the Centralia Project Fund at $15,450. Three hundred eighty-one gifts were received.
