Here's How It Works


The online Armed Forces Community Foundation “Stand-To!” Match Day is scheduled from 12 am to 11:59 pm on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, at  
Gifts by check must be postmarked on or before November 11, 2020 and mailed to GMCF, P.O. Box 1127, Manhattan, KS  66505.  Please include a completed “Stand To” donation form, which can be downloaded at, and return with one check for total amount made payable to AFCF.

A donation tent will be set up outside between the Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce & the Colony Square Office Complex at 555 Poyntz Avenue from 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Veterans Day, November 11.  Donors may visit this location to drop off donations during that time.  Please note that the Veterans Day Parade will take place on Poyntz from 9 - 11 a.m. so parking will be limited during that time.  In case of inclement weather, donations will be taken inside the atrium of Colony Square Office Complex. 


  • Matching funds of $25,000 are available to provide a 50% match up to $2,500 in match money per organization until the matching funds are depleted.


  • Donors will select one or more organizational funds to support.  100% of their donation will go to the organization’s AFCF fund.  Although gifts of any amount are welcome and encouraged, donations of a minimum of $25 will receive a local match at 50¢ on the dollar up to a maximum of $500 per charitable organization per donor.  
For example: Jane Doe makes a $500 donation to Organization X, $500 will go to the  Organization X AFCF fund.  Organization X will receive a $250 match from AFCF.  If Jane  Doe makes a $1,000 donation to Organization X, the matching grant from AFCF will be $250.
  • Combined donations up to a total of $5,000 will be matched at 50%, giving a maximum of  $2,500 in matching funds to any one organization.  
  • Donations are tax deductible.  If donors provide an email address, all gifts (check and online) will generate a receipt at the time of the donation and an additional receipt will not be mailed.  If no email address is provided, donations made by check will receive a receipt letter.
  • If donating by check, each individual donor should write one check made payable to AFCF for a total of all gifts to various agencies.  A printable form is available online for download and will be used to indicate which fund(s) to benefit.
  • Donations by participating organizations to their own fund will not qualify for the match.
  • Donations are irrevocable.
