It’s time to start checking those mailboxes. Our Holiday Match team has approved and allocated funding to as many nonprofits as possible, and the great news- the checks are in the mail!
The Holiday Match team has spent the past few months working hard to get checks ready for 1,715 organizations. Our customers generously donated $941,207 at our shops from Thanksgiving through Christmas Day, and because we care twice as much, we doubled your gifts. That’s over $1.88 million in Holiday Match grants that are on their way to help the kids in our communities!
“With COVID, nonprofits are hurting now more than ever, and the fact that we were able to raise over $1.88 million together with Stewart’s customers during a pandemic for kids in need, is a true testament to the integrity of the Holiday Match Program and our generous customers”, says Stewart’s Shops Director of Contributions, Amy Potter.
Although the past year has been incredibly tough on nonprofit organizations, we were very impressed to see how they have adapted and made the best out of current circumstances. “It was nice to see the creativity and strides towards sustainability for nonprofits as we come out of this pandemic. We read a lot about the success of going virtual versus in-person activities”, said Amy.
Since its inception in 1986, with the help of our customers, the Stewart’s Holiday Match program has raised more than $32 million for children’s nonprofits. We are committed to giving back to the communities in which we are located, donating approximately $2.5 million a year to local non-profits. The Dake Family Foundations contributes an additional $5 million annually.
