The annual Monterey County Gives Campaign kicks off on November 9th and is even bigger and better than ever this year!

The Monterey County Gives campaign is one of the best ways to give to Interim during the holidays. Last year, donations to Interim were matched at approximately 10.5%!

Monterey County Gives donations to Interim will support our MCHOME Homeless Outreach Program to pay for temporary motel stays for homeless adults with mental illness. MCHOME’s goal is to move homeless adults with mental illness off the streets and into housing and treatment.

Donations can be made beginning on November 9th and running through midnight on December 31.

MCGives is a collaborative effort between the Monterey County Weekly, the Community Foundation for Monterey County, and the Monterey Peninsula Foundation. The campaign supports over a hundred nonprofits in Monterey County and has raised over $12 million for the local community since 2009.

Be sure to pick up the November 9th edition of the Monterey County Weekly for more information.

Why Should I Give Through Monterey County Gives?

Put simply, your money goes farther. For example, with a 10.5% match, if you donate $100, we receive approximately $110.50.

Does MCGives take a portion of my donation?

No. 100% of your donation to Interim comes to Interim.

Where do the matching funds come from?

From the local community. The Community Foundation for Monterey County, Monterey County Gives, and Monterey Peninsula Foundation work to secure these matching funds before and during the campaign.

Do I have to give online? Can I write a check instead?

Giving online is the simplest method, but we will accept checks mailed to us. However, checks will need to be made out to: Community Foundation for Monterey County and indicate “MC Gives – Interim, Inc.” in the memo line.

Are my donations tax-deductible?

Yes, they are tax-deductible. You will receive tax documents from the Community Foundation since they will be processing payments. However, you will also receive an acknowledgement from Interim, Inc.

When is the giving deadline?

The campaign runs from November 9, 2017 – December 31, 2017 at midnight.
