Matching Gift Challenge

Matching Gift Challenge Details » Donate Online


The Houlton High School Alumni Association is pleased to announce a Matching Gift Challenge to create new endowments and to build the existing Endowment Fund!

For a limited time, you can have your donation to the Alumni Association Endowment Fund matched on a 1:1 basis … DOUBLING YOUR CONTRIBUTION!

Matches will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.  There are limited funds available for the match and

the Alumni Association reserves the right to discontinue the Challenge at any time.


The distributions from the Endowment Fund are used, in part, each year in combination with Annual Fund contributions to present scholarships to Houlton High graduates.  Our goal is to increase our annual giving and, to one day, offer a scholarship to every senior planning to continue their education at a post-secondary institution.


You can help make this dream become a reality with a gift to the Endowment Fund.  And, remember … for commitments made by September 30, 2018, your dollars will be DOUBLED! 


Make your donation today!!


Our thanks to the trustees of the Aaron A. and Maria H. Putnam Family Charitable Trust for providing the challenge gift of $45,000 making this Matching Program possible.  We appreciate their generosity and foresight in funding this effort!


There are 3 ways to participate in the Matching Gift Challenge: 1) you can have your gift included in the Alumni Association Endowment Fund, 2) you can have your gift included in an existing Named Scholarship Fund (sub fund) or 3) you can create a new Named Scholarship Fund (sub fund).  Named Scholarships can be set up in honor or in memory of an individual, couple or family or can be established in recognition of a graduating class year, a business or an organization as a way to provide scholarship assistance in perpetuity.
