Fostering Foster Animal Rescue recently received a surprise major gift match for charitable donations through the end of 2017.  An anonymous Kershaw County family is offering to match all individual and business donations through the end of the year up to $30, 000. 

“This is a game changer for us,” Andrea Walker, founder of Fostering Foster, said. “This type of generous gift could allow Fostering Foster to double the number of lives saved in 2018!”   

Fostering Foster is a 501c 3 non-profit organization focused on saving stray and unwanted pets, primarily dogs, in South Carolina.  In 2017 alone, Fostering Foster has saved more than 700 dogs from Kershaw County and surrounding counties, including Sumter, Fairfield, Richland, Chesterfield, Marlboro, and Horry Counties.  

“Opportunities such as this generous $30,000 matching gift come along rarely,” Walker said.  

In order to take full advantage of the offer, Fostering Foster will offer donors a wide array of giving opportunities to double donor dollars, including online options, kiosks at events, fun challenges and through donations sent via U.S. mail.   

“But the clock is ticking!” Walker added. “ For the next two months, every dollar is doubled so for the person that can afford $10, they will actually be contributing $20. Those dollars add up.”

This opportunity came on the heels of Fostering Foster’s annual Barn Dance fundraiser.  The 2017 event held at Pear Tree Farm in Boykin raised more than $25,000 from sponsorships, tickets sales and donations.
