Match Madness – Supporting our Local Nonprofits

Match Madness Celebrates 7 Years!

Entering its seventh year, Match Madness 2022 launches on March 1. Since its inception in 2016, our Match Madness Campaign has raised over $2.2 million dollars to advance the work of area nonprofits. Created as an incentive program to support our grantees, Match Madness has helped local nonprofits raise core operating funds by engaging community donors in this special March fundraising campaign. Through Match Madness we seek to promote the health of our community and champion the work of community organizations by inspiring additional generosity.

We are pleased to join with M&T Bank, the Josiah W. and Bessie H. Kline Foundation and the McCormick Family Foundation as our partners this year! With their support, generous donations from our volunteers and the Partnership’s match, our stretch pool has grown to $150,000! During the campaign, 100% of all donations will go to participating organizations and will be eligible to receive a portion of this match.

Donations may be made by check or online. Online donations can be made through the Partnership’s website Starting March 1st.

Just select your designated charity from the dropdown menu. Checks should be made payable to the Partnership for Better Health, listing your designated charity in your check’s memo line. Checks may be mailed to:

Partnership for Better Health
274 Wilson Street
Carlisle, PA 17013

The campaign runs from March 1 to March 31, 2022.
