Donate early for 
Matching Funds to 
support PAALS!

The deadline for matching funds is April 29th.

We’ll post more details about Midlands Gives Day closer to the event, so stay tuned!

We need your help! PAALS is once again participating in Midlands Gives 2021. This annual one-day giving challenge raises money for charities in central South Carolina. It takes place from 6 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4th. On that day, you’ll be able to donate $10 or more online to help us meet our ambitious goal of $80,000. We’ll use the funds we raise to train service dogs for veterans and first responders with PTSD and other disabilities at no charge to the client.


Matching Funds Needed

Prior to Midlands Gives Day, May 4th, we need to raise as much as possible in “matching funds” in preparation for the event. Matching funds collected ahead of time will help PAALS motivate givers on Midlands Gives Day. Say, we raise $20,000 in matching funds. On Midlands Gives Day, we can tell everyone who donates that day that their donation (of up to $20,000) is being matched by another donor dollar for dollar. 


If you plan to donate $100 or more as an individual or $250 as a business, please consider donating matching funds for Midlands Gives. We’d love to include your business logo on this page if you donate matching funds, so once you make your donation, please email your logo to our development coordinator at kaddy@paals.org. Thank you so much for whatever you’re able to do!
