Associates leverage matching gift funds to support causes that are important to them






UMB associates are extremely generous and are engaged in their communities. The UMB Foundation Matching Gift Program amplifies the financial contributions made by UMB associates to make an even bigger impact in our communities. See how associates are taking advantage of this benefit to support the causes they care about most.

Why do you support this particular nonprofit?

Matching Gift ProgramAfter being diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2017, being involved with the cancer center where I am treated is something that is extremely important to me – especially when it comes to research and patient care. Pedal the Cause directly benefits Siteman Cancer Center, and includes a fitness component, which I think is key to cancer patients’ during and after care plans.

Pedal the Cause’s model relies 100 percent on public donations to fund world-class cancer research. The organization has quickly become the gateway to curing cancer – all cancers, for everyone. Siteman Cancer Center is an international leader in all things cancer, they are doing some really great things as far as research and treatments go, that we can all benefit from, if ever faced with a cancer diagnosis.

Pedal the Cause enables everyone in the community to participate in some fashion. My hope is that the cycling portion helps those who are participating to either start a fitness routine or up the regimen they may already have in place.

For how long have you been contributing, financially, to the organization?

This will be my first year contributing to Pedal the Cause directly. My involvement is three-fold: financial, co-captaining a hospital team with my oncologist, and participating as a Century Rider (100 miles!!). It’s something I plan on doing with my children, friends and family for some time to come.

How is UMB’s matching gift program going to amplify your financial contribution?

UMB’s matching program essentially doubles the amount I gave personally, which will greatly help in reaching the goal I have set as an individual, along with helping our team achieve the $40,000 goal we have together.

Why should other associates take advantage of the Matching Gift Program?

It’s such an easy way for associates and UMB to amplify the impact they have financially with 501(c)3 organizations – it’s a win-win for everyone!

Additional comments/thought?
