As communities across the country face growing and urgent needs, community foundations have new opportunities to fulfill their roles as community leaders and conveners and quickly draw on their vast experience, local expertise and key partnerships to address these needs, here and now.

In a single day—Match Day—a community foundation can generate urgency around focused giving, expand engagement among nonprofit partners and donors, spur greater interest in the community foundation as a local resource, and involve hundreds of individuals in response to pressing community needs.

The Magic of Match Day features techniques, tips and tools from seven community foundations familiar with the power of a Match Day. Use the planning brief and tools to design your own Match Day.
