Double your dollars, double (triple?) your impact with money matching opportunities

There are two different matching opportunities to consider: 

Leadership matching:

  • If you donate at the leader level ($1200) for the first time this year, your entire donation will be matched by
    Major Donors Dick & Linda Auchinleck and Beverly King.  
  • If you were already a leader and you increase your donation this year, the increased amount will be matched. 

Families in Need & Mental Health and Addictions matching:

Any amount of money designated to Families in Need or Mental Health and Addictions will be matched by
Blue Heron Advisory Group of CIBC Wood Gundy.

Taking advantage of BOTH opportunities 

If you donate at the Leadership level (> 1200), you'll be matched as explained above. If you designate those leadership dollars to Families in Need and/or Mental Health and Addictions, the designation amount will be matched.  That's not even double-dipping, because you're accessing two different sources of funds!

See the table below for an illustration of the total impact if you take advantage of one or both of the matching opportunities.

If you've already donated and regret not designating, never fear!  You can go back to the special RRU portal of the UWSVI webpage, log in, indicate you want to 'change my donation' and make your way through the pages, complete the designations and save.  Boom.  Done.

If you have questions about the matching programs or how to designate, please let us know.
