The Satell Million Dollar Match Opportunity Through the Satell Institute to Benefit Nonprofits

May 4, 2020. Announcing the Satell One Million Dollar Match Opportunity (two million dollars total) an emergency funding initiative to support about 100 diverse Nonprofit Affiliates, to help the hard-hit nonprofit industry do their important work that so greatly benefits communities.

This Satell proactive matching gift opportunity is designed to help Satell Institute Nonprofit Affiliates with their valuable mission supporting the vast needs and services for so many in the region. The Million Dollar Match Opportunity includes the one-million-dollar contribution by Ed Satell from his personal funds through the Satell Institute, and a million-dollar cumulative match ($2,000,000 total) from individual Satell Institute Corporate and Foundation Members.
At an average match level of $10,000 per Member to help support the Nonprofit Affiliate of their choice, with some giving more, some less depending on their circumstances, we hope to have near 100% participation.
Time for Proactive Leadership from Our Able Corporate and Foundation Members
Satell said: “These funds are urgently needed by nonprofit organizations due to the extreme impact of the COVID-19 crisis. Nonprofits, who I see as the heroes of our society, must be able to carry out their important mission driven purposes so vital to overcome real problems that exist for people within the community. This includes diverse community nonprofits focused on helping with food insecurity, healthcare needs, fighting existing diseases, providing special education needs, youth development of many kinds as well as help for those afflicted by poverty, the aged, homeless, the handicapped, arts and culture, and other human needs.”
Satell has gifted his personal funds of $1,000,000 to stimulate and encourage the Corporate and Foundations Members of the Institute to participate in the Opportunity. The Satell Institute is challenging the crisis through proactive Corporate Social Responsibility. Satell added: “We’ve always believed ‘Think WE, not me. A million dollars is good, but doubling that, together as corporate leaders we make a huge difference. The region will know how much the Corporate and Foundation Members of the Institute care about the community.”
