Although Holiday Match checks have only recently arrived at their destinations, we are thrilled to see that many organizations are already hard at work helping their communities with this funding!

Since the program’s inception in 1986, Stewart’s Holiday Match has allocated more than $32 million to children’s nonprofits. This year, with the help of our generous customers, we allocated over $1.88 million in Holiday Match grants to 1,715 nonprofits benefitting the kids in our communities. Check out some of the organizations below to see how they’ve been able to put their Holiday Match funds to use:
