Match Your Donation to Bernheim with Give Local Louisville

By Cadell Walker

Give Local Lou 2015Bernheim is excited to join the upcoming Give Local Louisville effort, a great way to support our important mission “connecting people with nature”.  On this date, your impact will be enhanced through multiple matching gift offers.

On Thursday, October 1, 2015, the Community Foundation of Louisville will host the second Give Local Louisville.  This 24-hour, online “Give Day” will support local nonprofit organizations doing great work in our community.

Give Local Louisville is an opportunity for people to support local causes they care about and to turn their collective generosity into impact for our community.  For one day ONLY, every dollar given to local nonprofits will be augmented through proportionate match and prize dollars contributed by the Community Foundation of Louisville, its supporting partners, LG&E and KU Energy, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kentucky, Delta Dental of Kentucky; Sam Swope Auto Group; and a generous anonymous foundation.

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous Bernheim donor, the first $10,000 raised through Give Local Louisville will be matched dollar-for-dollar. This means that your gift given through Give Local Louisville will be matched dollar-for-dollar by our anonymous donor (up to $10,000) and you will help Bernheim be eligible for further propionate match and prize money from the Community Foundation of Louisville. Please do not let this opportunity pass us by.

Online credit card giving will take place from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on October 1st. Donors who wish to use their Community Foundation Donor Advised Fund or Charitable Checking Fund may do so by submitting a grant request through the Community Foundation of Louisville no later than 3:00 p.m. on September 25.  Restrictions apply. You can make your donation here on October 1.

Thank you for your continued support. If you donate annually to Bernheim please consider making your annual contribution on Thursday, October 1st through “Give Day” to leverage your impact and help Bernheim realize our critical mission.
