Match Day fundraising drops this year

Match Day fundraising drops this year: Yet, the number of donors was roughly the same for both years. On Thursday, 980 individual donations came in for 80 out of 96 nonprofits. Last year’s Match Day had 950 donors. Donation amounts and giving incentives differed this year and that, along with other factors the Community Foundation of North Florida suspects, made the difference.

Community Foundation executive director Joy Watkins said this year’s Match Day took place in June, compared to its first two years in November — the giving season.
