Friday marks the 11th annual Grow Green Match Day in Manhattan.

It’s the day when donations made through the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation to participating nonprofit endowed funds receive a 50% match. Last year, about $1.7 million was raised for 78 area organizations. GMCF President Vern Henricks says this year there are 95 participating nonprofits.
