Stewart’s Holiday Match Is Underway



It’s time again for Stewart’s Holiday Match! Stewart’s Shops will match individual donations made in all our shops from Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, to support local children’s organizations. In 2016, the Holiday Match program set a record for the third consecutive season, raising over $1.85 million which supported 1,737 children’s charities (also a record!). Generous customers have helped us raise more than $24 million since 1986. All the money donated goes to children’s charities; there are no administrative costs!

Local children’s charities must apply for funding. We suggest completing an online application, or if you prefer, paper applications are available in our shops. The deadline is January 31st.

For more information, please visit the Holiday Match FAQs page.

Please note:

  • Local 501c3 organizations benefiting CHILDREN under 18, preferably groups which help kids all year long can apply.
  • One application per agency.
  • A brochure listing the organizations which received funds last year is available at all Stewart’s Shops or by clicking here
  • Let us share with the community how Holiday Match funds have helped your organization. Please send pictures to [email protected] (.jpg or .png files preferred)
