CFSI is Proud to Give For Good

Providing $20,000 in Matching Funds to SI Nonprofits

We are a proud sponsor of Give For Good Louisville and are providing $20,000 in matching funds to Southern Indiana-based nonprofits!

Last year the Community Foundation of Louisville raised $4.3 million through their annual day of giving, Give For Good Louisville, helping support nonprofit organizations throughout our region, including many right here in Southern Indiana!

We wanted to help our Southern Indiana nonprofits capitalize on this incredible opportunity and so this year we are providing $20,000 in proportionate matching funds for Southern Indiana-based nonprofits on this single day of giving. Participating organizations based in Clark and Floyd counties will be eligible to receive a share of the $20,000 match pool equal to their percentage of the funds raised by Southern Indiana nonprofits that day. So the more they raise, the greater their share of the matching funds!

On September 14th, when you make a gift through Give For Good Louisville to support a Southern Indiana nonprofit, know that we’re helping you make an even greater impact by providing additional funds that will help our community continue to grow and thrive.
