HARTFORD – Harc has been selected to join 51 non-profit organizations in the Hartford area participating in Endow Hartford 21, a new matching gift endowment campaign initiated by the Zachs family and supported by other donors.
Unique in the breadth of agencies the campaign will benefit, Endow Hartford 21 brings two of the city’s leading foundations together in a community-wide campaign for the first time: The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford. The organizations are collaborating to provide administrative support and, in so doing, have helped to create a unique program designed to incentivize endowment giving throughout the community.
“This endowment opportunity will create a long-term resource to help us fulfill our mission during periods of revenue fluctuations,” said Maureen Madden, chief philanthropy and marketing officer. “Harc is building for the future, and thanks to the vision and leadership of the Zachs Family Foundation, and the other matching donors, we have an opportunity like no other to begin that journey.”
The Zachs Family Foundation has committed $1 million to the Endow Hartford 21 match program. They are currently approaching other organizations and individuals for additional matching funds. To date, they have raised an additional $580,000.
Launched on June 1,2021, Endow Hartford 21 will run for a minimum of one year. Any gift between $250 and $10,000 per participating organization will be matched 1:2 by Endow Hartford 21. Pledges alone will not qualify for the match. Donations are accepted through checks, credit cards, or gifts of appreciated stock.
