Community Matching Gift Program
The Goodwin House Foundation’s Community Matching Gift Program (CMGP) matches charitable gifts made by residents of Goodwin House Alexandria and Goodwin House Bailey’s Crossroads to select nonprofit organizations in Northern Virginia, which have specific programs addressing the needs of older adults. CMGP was funded with money from bequests from non-residents designated for this charitable purpose.
The Foundation matches gifts made by residents to Goodwin House “Partners.” Matches are made between January 1 and December 31 of each year for gifts between $50 and $500 per donor, per organization, per calendar year. Residents make their contributions directly to the partnering organizations listed in the Foundation’s CMGP brochure. At the end of each calendar quarter, partnering organizations send the Foundation a list of eligible gifts to be matched.
