What a jump!!! We’re approaching $50,000!!! And it REALLY underscores the value to our Chamber if your company has a matching grant program.

We’ve only got one donation to acknowledge today but it’s a doozy. Cyd Yonker, a Chamber Crew member AND a member of our steering committee, has again this year donated $5,000. And what makes this even sweeter is that the company she works for, EJ Gallo (yes, THAT Gallo), has a matching grant program so they’re adding $5,000 of theirs on top of the $5,000 of years. So that makes this a $10K jump.

And while we know everyone can’t afford $5,000 and while we know every company doesn’t have a matching grant program, the point is that there are plenty of companies that DO have these programs, even in these COVID times. So your $100 becomes $200, your $500 becomes $1,000, your $1,000 becomes $2,000, and – as is the case here with Cyd’s generous donation – your $5,000 becomes $10,000.

So be sure to check with your company to see if they have a similar program in place. Because we know you want to support your Chamber and this is a great way for you t double that support.

Here’s where we are this afternoon as we wait for more of you to click the link and add your name (and possible that of your company) to our list of Challenge donors: https://usc.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_dp3rzL7cVCFp1rM .
