Do you have clients in Southern Indiana who want to give back to their community and have their gifts doubled?  

Time is  Running Out to Double
Your Clients’ Charitable Gift… 

Because of a unique matching opportunity offered by the Lilly Endowment, Inc., the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana can double your clients’ charitable gifts if they are made by March 31st. It’s not too late for your clients to take advantage of this opportunity and have every $1 donated matched with another $1, doubling your clients’ gifts.  

Whether your client wants to make a cash gift or gift of stock, we’ll make it simple for them to double their gift by the March 31 matching deadline. Their gift will support the unrestricted Community Endowment Fund which is a simple and flexible option for those people who want to perpetually support the evolving needs of their community. And, if your clients contribute $1,000 or more they will be permanently recognized with a named fund within the Community Endowment Fund. 

If you have any questions about how your clients can take advantage of this unique matching opportunity, I hope you’ll visit our website and give me a call at (812) 948-4662 or email me at lspeed@cfsouthernindiana.com.
