SJI County Fair Match! A Startling Success18 Aug 2012, written by adminSJICF
As the 2012 County Fair draws to a close, the San Juan Island Community Foundation is pleased to announce that with the help of hundreds of citizens, our on-line Giving Center Match! Program was a huge success with all of the featured projects receiving support and two exceeding their Match! goal.
Match! donations for the Foodbank, Arts in the Schools, The Whale Museum Soundwatch program, a website for the new county-wide Arts Council, a Kindergarten Enrichment and Readiness program, Stage Left Theatre for All, Womens Fund memberships, scholarships and support for the Healthy Community Fund exceeded $33,500 and were matched by over $15,500 by the Foundation. The winner of the $500 ‘On-Top’ drawing was Courtland Bell who directed that amount to the Friday Harbor Food Bank. Congratulations to all!
The Community Foundation extends its deepest gratitude to the generous citizens who made this event so successful.
