March 7, 2023— Stewart’s Holiday Match funding has been allocated and checks have been sent to nonprofit organizations impacting children. This year, the Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Program will benefit 1,938 nonprofits.
From Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, customers donated over $1 million to the program, which was doubled to over $2 million with the Stewart’s match. There are no administrative costs with this program, meaning 100% of the funds collected and matched benefit these organizations.
According to Stewart’s Shops Director of Corporate Philanthropy, Jennifer Frame, “Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Campaign received a record number of requests this year, driving home the fact that the need in our local communities is great. We are honored that year over year, our customers continue to choose to contribute. By allowing us to double their gift, we can create real, positive, local change for so many organizations benefitting children. Charity harnesses the power of community, and we are so fortunate to have such generous customers in our communities.”
The Stewart’s Holiday Match program has now allocated more than $36 million since the program’s inception in 1986. The success of program is credited to Stewart’s customers for their generous contributions, dedicated shop partners who worked diligently to collect the funds, and to the media partners who helped spread the word.
Stewart’s Shops is committed to giving back to the communities in which they are located, in 2023, Stewart’s Shops/Dake Family has a goal to donate $9 million to nonprofits in need.
