Match Day 2019
On Friday, May 3, 2019, 30 local nonprofit organizations will work together with the goal of making 2019 NEPA Match Day the biggest day of giving in the Lackawanna County region’s history!
These participating organizations will work together to fundraise in support of the critical work they do in our community, which makes our region a better place to call home. For every dollar raised by each of the participating nonprofits, Scranton Area Community Foundation will match the gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $1,000 for each nonprofit. For one day only, your $25 gift becomes $50, $100 becomes $200, and $500 becomes $1,000. The Scranton Area Community Foundation will also award an additional bonus of $5,000 to one participating organization based on specific criteria and participation.
Show support for the critical work that these nonprofit organizations are doing every day in Northeastern Pennsylvania, to make our region a better place. Learn about how each organization is celebrating 2019 NEPA Match Day!

NEPA Match Day was established by the Scranton Area Community Foundation in 2015 as a way to help nonprofit organizations serving our community raise awareness about their organization, engage new and existing donors, and raise much-needed capital to build organizational capacity. Promoted as a fun way to encourage philanthropy in the community, NEPA Match Day aims to demonstrate how even small gifts make a big difference. In 2018, NEPA Match Day raised over $217,000 in 24 hours for 25 participating local nonprofit organizations serving the people of Lackawanna County.

Match Day 2018
For 24 hours on May 4th, 25 local nonprofits have the opportunity to double the donations you give. For every dollar raised by each of the participating nonprofits, the Scranton Area Community Foundation will match the gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $1,000 for each nonprofit. THIS YEAR, THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL BONUS! Thanks to the generosity of a regional funder, the top three performing nonprofits have a chance to nab the NEPA Match Day Bonus. This Bonus means every gift counts because your $10 donation to your favorite nonprofit could mean the difference between them receiving $1,000 or $7,000 in additional funds. Here is the list of 2018’s participating nonprofits:
1. Alzheimer’s Association- Greater PA Chapter

3. Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania

All gifts received by the Scranton Area Community Foundation will be divided evenly the 25 nonprofits…much like the gift we received in 2017 from the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Scranton. Their generosity gave every nonprofit a head start of $100 toward their NEPA Match Day goal. If you are mailing a check to the nonprofit of your choice, be sure to note “NEPA Match Day” in the memo section. Gifts received by mail up to a week after May 4th will count toward the NEPA Match Day total and bonus.
Help us beat the NEPA Match Day goal of $50,000 and surpass the record-breaking $141,000 that was raised last year for our community’s nonprofits. Your gift will make a difference. Together, we are stronger!
