Spreading the Word: Mid-Ohio Foodbank & Columbus Foundation's PowerPhilanthropy Match Day

Today at 2pm, you can donate to Mid-Ohio Foodbank through the Columbus Foundation's PowerPhilanthropy Match Day, and they will match $0.50 to every $1 you give.

For their public match day, donors have put up $100,000 in designated match funds. Minimum gift is $20, but there is no maximum gift amount. All donations will be matched until the funds are exhausted. Twenty basic needs organizations are eligible for match funds, and you can designate your gift directly to Mid-Ohio Foodbank.

This is a great chance to help feed families in need in central and eastern Ohio. So many new families are turning to our pantries, and this is a perfect time to help.

Here's how to do it:

1. Sign-up for an log-in on the Columbus Foundation's PowerPhilanthropy website.http://www.columbusfoundation.org/login.aspx

2. Visit their site right at 2pm on February 26th (today) to make your gift. Columbus Foundation Match Days generate a lot of excitement, and the funds could be used up fast.

There are a lot of other organizations who will receive money besides just the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. They aren't the only voice on hunger in central Ohio. In fact, they charge food pantries for the food they receive for free.
