The Stewart’s Holiday Match Program is a true community effort with Stewart’s Shops doubling every customer gift. Customer donations have reached $650,945 through Thursday, December 15th. That’s over $1.3M with the Stewart’s match so far, and there’s ten more collection days!
The Stewart’s Holiday Match Program has no administrative fees and donates 100% of donations received to charities in our market areas. Stewart’s Shops matches each donation penny for penny and dollar for dollar and has been doing so for the past 36 years, raising over $34 million for local charities.
These donations stay local and support local nonprofits; funding may go to a little league team, a local food pantry or an arts program at the library. Each week, a different Holiday Match recipient is highlighted, this week, Maalwyck Park is featured here.
While many other fundraising efforts spend 30% or more on overhead expenses, Stewart’s has no administrative fees and covers all the expenses. This means 100% goes to local nonprofits.
Holiday Match funds are collected from Thanksgiving to Christmas Day in each of the 357 shops. Local children’s organizations are encouraged to apply for funding here.
The deadline for submission is January 31, 2023. All groups applying must be locally based, benefit children under 18, and be a qualified, charitable 501c3 organization. A listing of all the local organizations that received funds last season is available online.
Let us double your gift.
