Holiday Match begins on Thanksgiving Day!
While you’re picking up some coffee, eggnog, milk, baking supplies, a quick bite, or even some ice cream, you’ll likely notice the Holiday Match container by the register at every Stewart’s Shop. Collections are accepted Thanksgiving day through Christmas day.
This year many non-profits are facing unprecedented hardships. Many of these groups have had to cancel their fundraising events and this comes at a time when more people are dependent on their services. With this increased demand in services, these groups are experiencing strains on budget, staffing and resources and they need our help!
Every Penny Matters
Whether you drop 10 cents or $10 in that little bucket, every contribution counts! Last year, our generous customers donated nearly $900,000 in spare change, it’s truly amazing how it adds up! We accept personal checks too; with Covid, we know more customers are using credit cards for transactions and we are happy to accept personal checks.
And you can feel good about you donation knowing that every donation is doubled with the Stewart’s match. And there are no administrative fees with the Holiday Match Program.
We care twice as much so we’ll double your gift.
Apply for Holiday Match
Applications for Holiday Match opened on Thanksgiving day. Non-profit 501c3 organizations are able to apply for funds starting Thanksgiving Day through January 31st. Applications are reviewed, and allocations are made in March. Applications can be found here.
About Holiday Match
This program started 34 years ago to specifically benefit organizations/programs for kids under the age of 18 in the areas of social services, health, education, recreations, and the arts.
To date, with the help of our customers, we have raised over $30 million for local children’s charities. We collect donations in our shops from Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day. We match our customers’ donations dollar for dollar, with no administrative fees. In 2019, together we raised over $1.79 million.
Your Donation Goes Further
Unlike most charitable programs, the Holiday Match has zero administrative fees. The program only accepts cash donations which eliminates credit card processing fees; and 100% of the donations are allocated for children’s charity groups. Also unlike other charities, EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR is matched, which means your donations are actually doubled. And personal checks are accepted.
Without the generosity of our customers, the Stewart’s Holiday Match Program wouldn’t be possible, we humbly thank you for your support!
Thank you to all of our media partners for helping to spread the Holiday Match message.
