Stewart’s Holiday Match Program Update: Over $640k Going to Local Charities So Far

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Stewart’s Holiday Match funds – which are collected from Thanksgiving to Christmas Day in each of the company’s 338 shops – had garnered more than over $320,000 customer donations through Sunday, Dec. 6, resulting in over $640,000 with the Stewart’s match.   

These donations stay local and fund local nonprofits; funding may go to a virtual library program, keeping the shelves stocked at the local food pantry or helping hungry kids at school. 

The Stewart’s Holiday Match Program has no administrative fees and donates 100% of donations received to charities in their market areas. The company matches each donation dollar for dollar and has been doing so for the past 34 years, raising over $30 million for local charities. 

Local children’s organizations are encouraged to apply for funding online at stewartsshops.com. The deadline for submission is Jan. 31, 2021. All groups applying must be locally based, benefit children under 18, and be a qualified, charitable 501c3 organization.
