Foundation sets new matching grant program


The Community Foundation of Switzerland County, Inc. has an

exciting opportunity to announce.

To celebrate its 20th Anniversary, the foundation is offering

a matching gift program from now until December 31st, 2017.

The matching gift program will match gifts of any amount up

to $20,000 to any permanent, endowed fund at the Community

Foundation. The match will be dollar-for-dollar, meaning

if someone contributes $500, the Community Foundation will

match it with an additional $500 and place the match in the same

endowment as the gift was made.

The matching gift program will also be available to anyone

wishing to create a new endowment at the Foundation. If you

or someone you know has been contemplating setting up an endowment,

please consider talking to Pam Acton or Melissa Andrew

at the Foundation’s office about this opportunity. They are

located at 303 Ferry Street in Vevay and can be reached at (812)

427-9160; or
