On Match Day, individuals had the opportunity to donate to 21 participating agencies or to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Basic Needs Fund. A total of $750,000 was available to match contributions and grow the impact of a donor’s gift. All gifts were matched proportionately, based on the total amount raised on March 14 by each organization. In addition to helping those in need, donors were entered into a drawing to win prizes donated by the Milwaukee Brewers and Time Warner Cable. They also had a chance to maximize their gift through the Golden Ticket promotion. View the final results.
All donations made on matchdaymke.razoo.com are made to the Razoo Foundation, a
501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization which permits donors to advise a regranting of their donations to other IRS recognized qualifying 501(c)(3). It’s Razoo
Foundation’s normal practice to regrant 97.1% of its contribution to the qualifying organization as advised by the donor, retaining 2.9% for Razoo
Foundation’s expenses (including credit card transaction costs).
