Help Grow KMA’s Endowment at Match Madness Tuesday, March 8!!
In the fall of 2014, a generous Kansas Museum Association member made a donation of $5,000 to begin an endowment for KMA. The KMA endowment was established at the Salina Community Foundation, where other members quickly donated to the fund, increasing it by 30%. Now on the heels of a very successful joint conference with MPMA along with other successful conferences, KMA is increasing that endowment to $37,000!
I challenge each of you to help keep that momentum going by helping KMA raise an additional $3,000 to reach a goal of $40,000 on March 8. Why then? It just so happens that on March 8, the Greater Salina Community Foundation will match your gift up to 50% from a $55,000 match pool.
Why do we want to reach $40,000? By reaching $40,000, KMA will have yearly funding of $2,000 towards Institutional Grants and Scholarships! Your gifts will directly help fellow institutions and KMA members through grants and scholarships and will also help sustain KMA for future generations.
Just think, in two short years, we can go from no endowment to an endowment that can sustain grants and scholarships. Wow, what an accomplishment!
So join me on March 8 and give to KMA through the Greater Salina Community Foundation’s Match Madness event. Online donations will be matched from 12:00 am-11:59 pm at www.gscf.org on March 8. For more information go to http://gscf.org/match-madness/.
