Strong City Preservation Alliance is excited to announce it has been chosen to participate in Match Day 2023. The next Emporia Area Match Day will be held online on Monday, November 13, 2023, and the gifts you donate will have a big impact! Your donation will go to our organization, and we will receive, on a prorated basis, a match of your gift so we can use it where needed most! You can feel good knowing your gift has made a positive difference for your favorite nonprofits.

The 9th annual Emporia Area Match Day was held on November 14, 2022, with 28 area organizations participating in the event. The Emporia Community Foundation awarded a record breaking $501,865.62 to the participating organization on Tuesday, November 29th! Over the past 9 years of Match Day events, over $2.3 million has been raised for 48 smaller area nonprofits.

With your support we will be able to supplement existing grants, help with future grant matching funds and fundraising efforts. The future of the 1900 Theater relies on the funds that will be collected from Match Day and other fundraising efforts by Strong City Preservation Alliance.
