Make A Match

Thank you to everyone who donated to our annual Make A Match Campaign. We are grateful for your support, especially during these unprecedented times. Through your generous donations and the matches received, we have raised over $43,000.00 for the programs of CTF ILLINOIS.

We would like to extend a special thanks to Community Services Foundation, who matched every donation received between November 1 and December 31, 2020, as well as The Coleman Foundation, who matched gifts over $125 between November 1 and December 1, 2020.

We look forward to another successful campaign beginning November 1, 2021!

Make A Match. Make A Difference.


What is the Make A Match Campaign?

The Make A Match Campaign is an annual campaign sponsored by Community Services Foundation, wherein 100% of donations are matched, up to $1,000 for individual contributions and up to $500 for corporate contributions. This campaign runs annually from November 1st through December 31st. 

What is The Coleman Foundation's Matching Grants Program?

Every year, The Coleman Foundation selects nonprofit organizations to be part of their matching grants program. For four consecutive years, CTF ILLINOIS has been selected as a recipient. This year, all donations made of at least $125 will result in a $125 matching contribution from The Coleman Foundation. The Coleman Foundation campaign typically runs from November 1st through Giving Tuesday. 

So, how can I make the biggest impact?

While we appreciate any and all contributions, the biggest impact you can make will come from donating at least $125 between November 1 and Giving Tuesday , so that your donation will count toward BOTH campaigns. 

Here's a few examples of how your donation will work:

  • A donation of $125 will result in a total gift of $375, with both Community Services Foundation and The Coleman Foundation matching $125
  • A donation of $250 will result in a total gift of $625, with Community Services Foundation matching $250 and The Coleman Foundation matching $125
