The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County: Day of Giving

If you were considering charitable giving to a non-profit organization in Westmoreland County, you may be able to increase your donation with matching funds... if you donate before midnight tonight. Not all charities qualify, to check your charity, go to: scroll down to the NONPROFITS SECTIONS, click in the first blank area, and start typing in the name of your charity. For example, "LOY" brings up Loyalhanna Watershed Association WC Scroll back up to the top of that page for more information (minimum, maximum pro-rated match, Visa-Master Card only, etc.) The way I'm reading this, they raised about $100,000 for matching, and have already received $300,000 in donations, so the pro-rated match will be $10.00 for every $30.00 donation, which isn't too bad.
