State Farm® - Matching Gift Program

Make your gift to Western Avenue Community Center go further!

The new State Farm Matching Gift program was launched on July 1st and we are excited about the possibilities!  State Farm employees, retirees and agents who contribute to Western Avenue Community Center can have their gifts matched by State Farm for up to $1,500 per calendar year. The program is retroactive to any gift made since January 1, 2016 and donations must be a minimum of $25.

All you have to do is fill out a simple form requesting State Farm to match your gift!  The site is available here, or visit the SFNet home page for a link.

In addition, if you are a State Farm employee, retiree or agent who volunteers at the Western Avenue Community Center or Lawrence Irvin Neighborhood Center for 40 or more hours in a year State Farm will continue to grant our organization $500 under its Good Neighbor Grant program.

We appreciate this major support from State Farm and could not do what we do without our donors and friends. Visit our Donations webpage to make a donation.

Please visit our Calendar to see the upcoming events that are scheduled.
