Local Edmonds law firm and Edmonds Chamber of Commerce member Beresford Booth PLLC is offering a $2,500 matching grant for the “An Edmonds Kind of Hero” fundraising campaign.
"My partners and I thank everyone in the Edmonds community for supporting the Chamber,” said Bill Kessler, partner at Beresford Booth. “We believe the Edmonds Chamber a vital part of the fabric of this amazing community."
The grant will match dollar for dollar all sustainable donations over $50 to the “An Edmonds Kind of Hero” campaign, up to $2,500. Donors can make their gift sustainable by selecting the annual option, ensuring their support continues into the future.
“These funds enable the next group of donors to have their gifts doubled,” said Greg Urban, president and CEO of the chamber. By making your gift sustainable, we will be able to move into and through 2021.”
Donations to the “An Edmonds Kind of Hero” campaign help support the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, a 113-year-old local nonprofit, as it has had to cancel many big community events.
As of Tuesday morning, the campaign has raised $45,427 from 457 donors. The chamber’s goal is $100,000.
