The Nemaha County STEP Foundation is excited to announce its first STEP Up Nemaha County Match Day, which is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 27.
“The STEP Foundation is thrilled to provide a day of community giving where each fund will be eligible for a dollar to dollar match up to $3,000 per fund,” said Executive Director Tory Jost.
The Nemaha County STEP Foundation will be holding an in-person day of giving from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 27, at the Seneca Free Library.
There will be a form to designate where the donor would like the money to be given. Cash, checks and credit cards are welcome. To give an online donation, visit www.stepupnemaha.com from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 27, and select the fund or funds to which you would like to donate. People can watch the tallies of the funds throughout the day via the website.
Jim and Patricia Koch have contributed a donation of $50,000 toward the first annual Match Day event. Formerly, they established the Catastrophic Medical Fund to assist those struggling with medical issues such as cancer, stroke, heart failure and others. Once again, they have designated $15,000 of the $50,000 to the Catastrophic Medical Fund.
