It'd be tough for any organization to compete for attention with March Madness, but that was no problem for Greater Milwaukee Foundation's Match Day yesterday. The 24-hour online giving event – built around funds, support and awareness for nonprofit groups in southeastern Wisconsin – wound up raising $3,490,552 for its 20 food and shelter organizations. 

Last year's Match Day also raised more than $3 million for food and shelter agencies in the Milwaukee area. 

The participating nonprofits this year include:

  • Advocates of Ozaukee
  • Cathedral Center
  • Center for Veterans Issues
  • Community Advocates
  • Daystar
  • Family Promise of Washington County
  • Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin
  • Food Pantry of Waukesha County
  • Friends of Abused Families
  • Guest House of Milwaukee
  • Hebron House of Hospitality
  • Hope Center
  • Hope House of Milwaukee
  • Hunger Task Force
  • Milwaukee Rescue Mission
