|Anonymous Donor To Match UMCC Donations |
A local resident who believes strongly in the mission of United Mid-Coast Charities has agreed to match up to $50,000 for every dollar the organization raises in the coming weeks. The announcement comes as UMCC launches its year’s end fundraising campaign.
In announcing the matching gift, UMCC President Steve Crane said, “The mission of UMCC continues to resonate. It’s especially meaningful to experience such generosity during this challenging time for the organization. UMCC represents a powerful force for good that spans 72 years, and it’s that legacy of giving that continues to define those of us who call the Midcoast of Maine ‘home.’”
Founded in 1942, UMCC collects funds for grants supporting more than 50 agencies serving children and families in Knox and Waldo counties. This past year, UMCC awarded grants totaling more than $331,000 to 51 area agencies—from soup kitchens and food banks to health clinics and youth programs.
Prior to awarding the grants, UMCC visits each agency to learn exactly how the funds will be used, then reviews the agency’s finances top to bottom. Resources are allocated to meet specific program needs. And finally, UMCC follows up to confirm that 100% of the money is used for the stated purposes.
