Kent Community Foundation encourages local giving with match challenge

first_img Melanie May | 6 August 2019 | News Kent Community Foundation (KCF) has launched The Lawson Trust Million Pound Endowment Match Challenge, to encourage giving in Kent.The Lawson Trust Million Pound Endowment Match Challenge will deliver an additional £2 million to support charities within Kent and Medway, with every £1 donated matched with another £1 donation from The Lawson Trust.The funds will be invested in perpetuity and the income gained every year will be used for charitable grant-making.The Match Challenge is open to individuals, families, trusts and foundations and businesses wishing to start an endowment fund or build upon an existing endowment fund at Kent Community Foundation.New fund-holders must be committed to setting up a named endowment fund, starting at £50,000 and current fund-holders will need to top-up by £25,000 in order to qualify for the match, with the maximum amount of match available is capped at £100,000.Josephine McCartney, Chief Executive, Kent Community Foundation, said:“Donating to a match fund appeals to philanthropists as over time, the amount distributed will outstrip the original gift, making a lasting legacy for the community. If you, your family or business decided to contribute to a match fund your endowment will be pooled with other funds held at Kent Community Foundation allowing for a broader spectrum of investments, protection of capital and increased returns. And the great news is that by investing donations, the benefit to the recipients is magnified beyond what the donor might have been able to give during his or her life.”Kent Community Foundation was set up in 2001 and has so far distributed over £34 million in grants.  224 total views,  2 views today  225 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12 Advertisement Kent Community Foundation encourages local giving with match challenge Tagged with: matched giving About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

According to Cyprexx, InvisiBoard helps prevent neighborhood blight by eliminating plywood boarding. However in the past, polycarbonate has been an expensive alternative.Ed Mullen, CEO of Cyprexx Services said, “The current sizes are expensive due to waste and poor utilization. Our analysis shows that 86 percent of installations are best serviced with a special manufactured sheet size. We are excited to announce that we have this size produced and now available at select locations. With the new 38” X 76” sheet size, vendors will effectively be able to get coverage for two 38” x 38” openings (which is the installation size 54% of the time).” Cyprexx announced it will offer an introductory, promotional price for the new 38” X 76” InvisiBoard sheet at $76.46 per sheet.In addition, Cyprexx Services, LLC is launching on Amazon two new all-inclusive combination packages for InvisiBoard Installation.
