Donations made through the mail, United Way GWD’s website, or telephone calls, during the time period of December 4 to January 1st, 2018, are eligible to be matched.
This match is made possible through gifts received by United Way GWD from The Co-operators, In Memory of Angelo and Victoria Moccia, Ken Dardano, Kimberley and Vince Rogers, Rick McCombie, Donie Fogarty, Downtown Guelph Business Association and Steve Allen. During this campaign the total in matching funds available is $15,000. United Way GWD assumes sole responsibility for implementing the match. United Way GWD reserves the right to exclude any donations from this matching gift process at any time, for any reason. Matching gift donors, or any other partners that may join this matching gift offer, assume no obligation to match any gift from any United Way GWD supporter.
Donation matches are implemented by United Way GWD staff, based on funds donated. United Way GWD will take funds provided by matching donors and match them with the corresponding funds individual donors provide. The combined amount will support the work undertaken by United Way GWD. Donors will only receive a tax receipt for the amount they contribute.
United Way GWD will match donations received from individuals with the appropriate amounts from funds provided by the match partners. To be eligible, donations must be received through the channels listed above by 12:00pm EST on January 1st, 2018.
If the total dollars contributed to this matching gift campaign during 2017 falls short of the campaign target, United Way GWD will match as many of the available gifts as possible, and reserve the remainder of the funding for matching gift campaigns in subsequent years, or apply them to other charitable programs or goals. During such campaigns, United Way GWD will post new terms under which the match will be implemented. If the total dollars raised from matching gift campaigns during 2017 exceed the total available, United Way GWD will choose gifts to be matched through a random process until the total available match amount is exhausted.
