Match Day credit card gifting extended

SIDNEY — Due to a credit card processing issue, Match Day credit card gifting is being extended until noon on Wednesday, Nov. 30.

“We realized early on Tuesday that credit card transactions were not completing and notified our provider, who immediately began working on the problem. I apologize for the inconvenience to everyone who tried to give. We know how enthusiastic people are about Match Day and the opportunity to make twice the impact with their gifts,” said Marian Spicer, executive director of the Community Foundation of Shelby County, the sponsor of Match Day.

The Community Foundation Match Day challenges supporters of 25 local charities to give with the opportunity to have gifts matched up to $5,000 per charity.

Final results for Match Day will be announced on Dec. 16 with a celebration at 10 a.m. at the Historic Sidney Theatre. The public is invited to attend the free celebration.
