The Harold and Kay Matching Gift Fund Challenge 

A Legacy of Support for Neighbors Facing Hunger 

About Harold and Kay

Harold and Kay were motivated by their own firsthand experiences growing up during the Great Depression. Their matching gift fund lives on in their names to ensure no one, especially our senior neighbors, has to worry about where their next meal will come from.  

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Harold and Kay Matching Gift Fund Challenge! Now through March 31, 2024, the Harold and Kay Matching Gift Fund is doubling all gifts to Gleaners, up to $100,000. That means every $1 you give is worth $2 – enough food for 6 meals! 

Your donation today will continue the strong legacy started by Harold and Kay to brighten the lives of our older community members through the gift of healthy food, care, and compassion.  

Many of our senior guests rely on the support they receive from Gleaners to make ends meet due to increased prices at the grocery store and competing budget priorities like medications and utility bills. Shirley is one example. “My life has changed due to inflation,” she says. “Everything at the grocery store is up, so I don’t get as much as I used to. I just try to stretch it out because I’m on a fixed income, and so is my husband. I’m just thankful and grateful for places like Gleaners.”  

Your donation to Gleaners will help Shirley and other neighbors who need a little extra help. When you give before March 31, the Harold and Kay Matching Gift Fund will automatically double your gift, up to $100,000, making your donation go TWICE as far.  

Together, let's honor Harold and Kay by feeding hungry neighbors in our community. Please give generously today.
