double your gift
to the annual fund

Matching gift of $30,000 to celebrate our first thirty years!

Gifts to the Annual Fund are used in the current year to support the Foundation's programs and operations at a level beyond what our growing endowments can provide. Without your Annual Fund gifts, we would not be able to operate at our current levels, and our effectiveness in fulfilling our mission would be greatly diminished.

double the love, double the good

This year, your gift to the Annual Fund could immediately double in value! To honor the Foundation’s 30th anniversary, The Cunningham Family Trust will match eligible annual fund contributions dollar-for-dollar. Eligible gifts include:

  • gifts of $1,000 from donors who gave below that level in 2015
  • gifts of at least $1,000 from donors who didn’t give a gift to the Annual Fund in 2015
  • incremental additions of $1,000 from donors who gave that much or more last year
  • additional gifts made in 2016 to bring a donor’s total giving to $1,000

The match will apply to the first 30 eligible gifts made before December 31, 2016.
Double your good today.

maximizing resources

With your support, we’re an increasingly important resource for Evanston, assuming a role in our community of a much larger foundation. Your contributions to the Annual Fund support today's needs and enable us to carefully manage the growth of our endowments to ensure a bright future for Evanston.
