Support Topeka Gives!In celebration of its 30th anniversary, the Topeka Community Foundation has slated Topeka Gives. The event takes place 7 am to 6 pm, June 19, at Fairlawn Plaza. TCF has pledged up to $30,000 in matching grants to nonprofits for all money donated on Topeka Gives day.
Dozens of area nonprofit organizations are signed up to participate in Topeka Gives. On June 19, people are invited to come to Fairlawn Plaza, write a check to TCF and indicate the organizations among which they'd like the amount divided. At the end of the day, TCF will divide its match, prorating the amount if donations exceed $30,000. The money will be given with no strings attached.
