Spring 2017 Matching Gift Challenge

  • March 03, 2017

A group of Anonymous Donors Gives A Matching Gift Challenge!

We have been given a wonderful opportunity to insure we can provide services to the people who come to us for help. A group of anonymous donors has provided a grant of $10,000 for a Matching Gift Challenge.

For the entire month of March 2017, all donations received online and through the mail will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000. That means that every gift you give will double in its value to help the poor and needy in our community.

Currently we have a total of 35 residents; 14 men, 13 women and 8 children residing with us and we want to insure that we can continue to provide everything they need to get back to the point of self-sufficiency.

Are you willing to help us successfully fund this Matching Gift Challenge?

Please use the DONATION link or mail your gift to: Carthage Crisis Center, 100 S. Main St., Carthage, MO 64836.

Remember, if you give us $50, it will matched so your gift will become $100! And if you give $20, it will become $40. And if you are able to give $100, then we receive $200!

Please respond as soon as you can. We only have the month of March to complete the matching gift Challenge.

Thank you in advance for your generous support.

‚ÄčThe McCune Brooks Healthcare Foundation presented the “Humanitarian of The Year Award” to the Carthage Crisis Center. This is the first time that the award has been given to an organization instead of an individual. We are pleased and honored to accept this award. We realize that our staff, volunteers, board of directors and donors are all a part of this award. It takes a team to do what we do. Thanks be to God!
