See How it Worked

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.
