How it Worked

For 24 hours on March 13, 2014, individuals had the opportunity to make an online donation to 20 food and shelter agencies in southeastern Wisconsin. All gifts were matched proportionately, thanks to a match pool of $750,000. An additional $8,000 was distributed randomly to eight participating nonprofits through the Golden Ticket promotion, generously sponsored by the Brewers Community Foundation. A number of Greater Milwaukee Foundation donors also contributed that day by making a grant through their funds. For total Match Day results and highlights, visit
